RED EUROPE (via Matthew Cohen):

Latvia cements gay marriage ban (Laura Sheeter, 12/15/05, BBC News)

MPs in the Baltic state of Latvia have passed a constitutional amendment ensuring that gay couples cannot marry.

The change was supported by a majority of parliament - despite criticism of it by the country's president, prime minister and foreign minister.

Members of the European Parliament said the move was homophobic and backward.


American even.

paraphrasing John O'Sullivan:

'the only known symptom of homophobia is being accused of having it.'
