King Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia says homosexual marriage should be permitted
King Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia has announced in his website, in his 2nd text for 20th February (article 50 for February 2004) that gay marriage should be allowed as part of the diversity of humanity. His remarks were made after having seen television pictures of same-sex marriages in the past few days being carried out in San Fransisco (whose Mayor has for some days authorised the issuance of licences for such marriages, resulting in round-the-block queues and people camping outside City Hall to take advantage of this dispensation). The King's hand-written remarks are, as usual, in French - see the top two paragraphs of the first page of his manuscript text. The home page for his website is here. Link through the Guardian.
