BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia's Congress approved a bill late on Thursday granting same-sex couples rights similar to their straight counterparts, a move seen as the biggest advance for homosexuals in this Roman Catholic country."We" don't like foreigners here, and we don't like foreigners in foreign countries either, even if they happen to share "our" "family values".
The measure, supported by President Alvaro Uribe but opposed by the church, grants gay couples living together for more than two years the same social security and estate inheritance guarantees as heterosexuals in common law marriages.
Colombia just happens to share a border with Venezuela. And guess what else they've got?
