South Africa: Gay marriage

Fodder from South Africa reports on the move towards gay marriage in the country. “Firstly a large part of the argument against gay marriage is that it'll weaken marriage as a union between two people. But lets be honest here – marriage is already in crisis and thus far it has been the exclusive domain of heterosexual couples. So any crisis that marriage is facing is the exclusive fault of hetro couples and gay couples are not going to worsen the situation.”
