Spain may legalise gay marriage

According to this Reuters report, the government of incoming Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero plans to legislate to legalise gay marriage in Spain.

After the recent terrorisst outrage in Madrid, which perhaps led to the electoral upset which allowed Zapatero's party to win in the almost synchonous elections, it is pleasing to note that a positive result may flow to balance the other aspects of the victory. Undoubtedly there will be much opposition from the Holy See to the change planned for this devout Catholic nation.
