America, champion of freedom and civil rights*

*for heterosexuals, whiteand Christians...

This will be another situation where Americas name is far down the list on countries extending rights to everyone, but we'll still pretend like we are the world leader in freedom production.

Wow, so the US is starting to fall behind in civil rights compared to South America.  Way to go, you champion of freedom you.

Expansion of same-sex marriage rights both in Canada and in South American nations is disturbing, and the concern will only increase if a Central American nation follows suit. Eventually, God will strike down these nations in His wrath, and the United States may suffer substantial collateral damage as a consequence.

FTFA: And it also increases the age of consent for sexual relations to 16, from the current 12 for women and 14 for men.

wat? 12?  Remnants of medieval times or Taliban-style marriages? Glad it got increased.

Not the first one. Gay marriage is already legal in Argentina and many Brazilian states.

I've never been to South America, and I really want to go. I'm told that Uruguay (Montevideo, specifically) is one of the nicest places in the world. Anyone who's been there care to disabuse me of this notion?

Also, for the record, good job, Uruguay!

Here on Fark, you only have to mention a place for people to come running to tell you what a hellhole it is.

The bill was approved by more than two-thirds of the lower chamber, despite opposition from the Catholic Church.

bwahahahaha good to see there's a dent in the overwhelming influence of the Church on everything Latin American whether they believe in that shiat or not.

In another recent thread where age of consent vs. marriage came up I went looking at rates of AOC/AOM was for your Alabamas, your Mississippis, what have you. Well, consent in the redneckiest states are pretty reasonable ranging from the 15 through 18 ranges. My home state of Virginia? Considered to be one of the classier states in the South? Age of consent is 18... and marriage is 12. The second youngest age to marry in the other 49 states is 15. WTF Virginia? Cuccinelli's derp isn't that contagious is it?

Good on Uruguay.

But why, oh why, does the media still have to find the most stereotypical, flamboyantly gay photo they can find to run with the article? They're not helping.

Mexico City too, and they've tried to push a law to allow lgbt married couples to adopt, but the fact that the Catholic church is a nut tough to crack, it has been tough.

//Once Mexico City made it legal, a barrage of states suddenly made it illegal

I've heard it's the most European. That, and their wine is good, and they love beef.

Uruguay legalizes Paraguay might have worked for the headline as well...

Uruguay is very European: Wikipedia says 88% of Uruguay's population is of European descent. Uruguay also has a strong middle class, official separation of church and state, and has a high rate of literacy.
