Precedent-setting ruling: State must recognize gay marriage
In a precedent-setting ruling, the High Court of Justice on Tuesday ruled that five gay couples wedded outside of Israel can be registered as married couples, Army Radio reported.

A sweeping majority of six Justices in favor and one against ruled that the common-law marriages of five gay couples obtained in Toronto, Canada, can appear as married on the population registry.

The gay petitioners sought to force the state to give equal recognition to common law marriages of heterosexual couples to those of gay marriages, which can be performed in certain countries.

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel that filed the petition on the behalf of the couples, argued before the court that the Interior Ministry's refusal to register them as married compromises their right to equality and to hold family life, and is based on "homophobe social perceptions."

2. gasp!!! is israel still standing?
has it turned to dust yet?

and that's the thing that will be hard for the conservative religious to 'splain.

israel will go on -- life will go on -- even in the holy land -- gay marriages won't change a thing -- except for those gay folk who will have some equity in this world.
