This happened last night, so you probably already know, but…

Brazil’s Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Thursday to recognize same-sex civil unions as a “family entity.”

The ruling makes the largely Roman Catholic country one of a few countries in South America to allow some form of legal unions for homosexual couples.


The ruling grants gay and lesbian couples the same benefits – such as retirement benefits, inheritance, community property and social welfare – as heterosexual married couples.

Separate but equal, but okay.

I always enjoy linking to sources like the Christian Post when stories like this come out.
