Israeli president backs same-sex marriage
This is great news! Now I wonder how long it will be until homophobic wingnuts here in the states, start angrily yelling about how Israel will “incur the wrath of God” for tolerating homosexuality?
Israeli President Shimon Peres on Sunday publicly backed marriage rights for same-sex couples.
“Even a person who is a homosexual is a human being, and he has rights,” he told the news website Ynetnews during an interview while he was in Mexico on a state visit. “We cannot take away someone’s rights because they are different. We cannot take away their right to breathe, right to eat or right to start a family. We must allow everyone to live as is natural to them.”
