The controversial legislation grants same-sex couples the right to marry as well as adopt children, and passed by a vote of 33 to 27, with three abstentions. Thousands of the new law’s protestors and supporters gathered in front of the Argentinean Congress, as opinion polls show the majority of Argentineans support gay marriage, but are torn on the issue of gay adoption, in effect pitting the administration against the Roman Catholic Church.
Mexico City recently passed a similar bill allowing homosexual couples to marry and adopt, and currently a small number of other countries allow same-sex marriage including Netherlands, Sweden, Portugal and Canada. Currently, the only U.S. jurisdictions to allow same-sex couples to marry are Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.
Also at odds with the church is Lindsay Lohan, who recently appeared in a promotional poster for Robert Rodriguez’s movie Machete as a nun with a tongue for a smoking gun.
Lohan’s recent sentencing for probation violation are reportedly not going to affect her cameo in Rodriguez’s film, or her role starring as Linda Lovelace of Deep Throat fame. While shooting promotional photos for Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, Lohan twittered other photos of herself brandishing a pistol against her lips. Trigger-happy, indeed.
