When even predominantly Catholic nations are granting same sex marriages why is America still behind??

Unfortunately, in California 54 million was spent between the Mormon's and Catholic's to fight Prop 8, (gay marriage).

Religious actions still undermine our secular country.

I think it's fantastic. I honestly don't even know why gay marriage is an issue. People should be allowed to marry whoever they want, there are another things to worry about

(well, except for that blip that is California. Any word on when that judge will rule?)

I am very proud to belong to a generation of teenagers gays who saw this change in Argentina! I'm proud of the decision of our senators.

If we can leave your generation of gay and lesbian and bi and trans youth worldwide with the safeguards of Freedom with Dignity and the Rights of all other men and women equally protected to love whomsoever you choose and to serve proudly and live joyfully, it will all have been worth it. Harvey Milk would be so proud of Argentina's leaders today. I know I am. Bless you and best wishes always. Vaya con Dios De Amor, de Paz, y Justicia y Libertad! Viva Argentina Libre!

Why, because gay people there - like in a handful of states in the US - can finally express openly their life commitment to their partner? Yeah, that sounds like trouble. Trouble for bigots whose only right that's stripped away is the right to discriminate against gay people.

What great news to hear, especially coming from an entire continent steeped in religions both indigenous and imported.

just for the sake of general information, i am pretty sure that NO indigenous religion on the planet condemns homosexuality in the way the the christian and muslims do , but only those religions preach hatred and death to those that don't convert.

I would not say none do, but I agree with you that the religious constructs of native cultures approach the reality of homosexuality much differently than euro-asian societies do. In historic times, native cultures were known more for infanticide, occult supersticions and child brides..

Why does this topic make so many people mad? Don't we have better things to protest about. It's not going to ruin the world. Well I don't think so anyway. Wait...........I see rainbows everywhere! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

The USA needs to keep the State out of religion, and religion out of the State

AND

Tax all religions for what they are: predatory corporations

Yep.

Good for Argentina, in any case.

So much for the US being the "free-est" country in the world. Gay people can't even serve in the military openly, much less get married.

What's the matter with us, and why do we keep letting the religious nuts rule us?

We don't have to destroy traditional marriage to be free.

See Prop 8 trial defense. The "destroying marriage" argument is as empty a calorie as there is.

Marriage is strengthened when more people have access to it. You're on the losing side of history, my friend.

If someone else getting married threatens your marriage, it was already in trouble.

Winning the World Cup AND legalizing gay marriage both in one year would've been too good to be true for any country. So, instead, we decided to let Germany beat us so we could focus our complete attention on providing equal rights. Really... :)

Vamos Argentina!

In the US this issue is for the US Supreme Court to decide. It’s implications go beyond what voters should be asked to decide.

Not the Supreme Court. It's up to Congress to make the explicit law to clarify that there equal protection for all - even if you're gay. This is not an issue for the voters. If it was, there would still be slavery, no interracial marriages, segregation, women couldn't vote, etc., etc., etc.

Gandhi didn't like your attitude either!

It actually is an issue for the Supreme Court. It requires clarification on a Constitutional issue, the right of all people to marry whomever they like, regardless of that person's sexual orientation. It is an equal protection clause issue that requires interpretation/clarification -- exactly what we have the SCOTUS for. So no, it's isn't Congress's place to supercede that judicial review of existing law. The Congress already acted in a bigoted way when they enacted DOMA, which is going to be ruled unconstitutional eventually. They don't need to make another law in the same vein until that one has been tossed out.

I agree. Civil Rights shouldn't be put to a vote.

Thanks to the violent christians, this country is light years away from progressing
