the words to our national anthem? Isn't there the little bit in there about "the land of the free and the home of the brave"??? Once again the U.S. lags behind- free, but not free for all. Certainly not for me...
Ireland Backs Legalizing Gay Partnerships
DUBLIN, Ireland -- Ireland will legalize civil partnerships for gay couples, Prime Minister Bertie Ahern pledged Monday as he opened new offices for the country's main gay rights group. Civil partnerships allow gay couples the same rights to inheritance, state benefits and other financial rights as held by married heterosexual couples. "Sexual orientation cannot, and must not, be the basis of a second-class citizenship. Our laws have changed, and will continue to change, to reflect this principle," Ahern told an audience at Ireland's Gay and Lesbian Equality Network.
