I guess even the most remote and backwards countries will move this along before the US. Congratulations to the grown-ups in New Zealand.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Nick Perry. Kudos to MP Louisa Wall, the Bills sponsor and the 76 other members who voted for passage. A great day in New Zealand! Read and pridefully noted!

I agree with Kit....as the rest of the world hurries to recognize humanity, love and logic....religious fanatics in the US stamp their feet and point fingers!

Good news. After all gays and lesbians are citizens like any other citizen and has therefore the same civil rights and obligations.

Marvellous. Canada has done this years ago and the sky has not fallen in. Good to see that New Zealand is favouring non-discrimination. Some campaign against moving towards equality in their own nations but equality always wins out in the end.
