Bulgaria: Luxembourg Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill File photo.

Luxembourg has passed a same-sex marriage and adoption rights bill in a landslide poll of its MPs on Wednesday.

The Chamber of Deputies voted by an overwhelming majority of 56-4 for the law which will be put into force by early next year.

“This is a happy day for Luxembourg and for those who favor equal rights for all, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity,“ Boris Dittrich, advocacy director of Human Rights Watch’s LGBT rights program said, as cited by international media.

Luxembourg has now joined the sixteen other countries that have already passed a law allowing same-sex marriage, including the Netherlands, Brazil, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, and 19 US states.

There's enough grown men hugging each other in the World Cup soccer tournament.
With Russia getting the next tournament , I wonder how arrests of players and couches
there will be?

;-)...and another "next": despite the possible highest "letting", Russians will hardly marry the humaniform Gorillas, even the famously fictional/delusional "Magilla" ones...

Next thing you know, they'll let Russians marry humans.

This is disgusting, yet another western exanple of how traditional marriage values are becoming useless as clearly the word "marriage" isn't as beautiful as it used to be anymore.

Following the legalization of the homosexual brain disease I would expect incest, phaedophilia and zoophilism to be legalized next? Congratulations, you ended your own humanity!
