The SNP has announced that it would allow for sme sex unions to become legal in Scotland!
Ministers in the Scottish Parliament have confirmed they would bring forward a bill on the issue, indicating the earliest ceremonies could take place by the start of 2015.
I have to admit that this is pretty shocking news since Scotland has been fairly religious in the past with the National Covenant and not celebrating Christmas until fairly recently. This is the same stock that the US religious right hail, although we could say the Northern Irish or Welsh try to be religious in the religiousity department.
I’d like to think this signifies that there may be hope for the US to get its shit together, but that may be too much to ask for.
