Times: Recognising gay couples

Sunday, 23rd August 2009 by Patrick Attard, Naxxar

It was disappointing to read that Fr Joe Borg views the recognition of gay couples by the State as going against the common good (The Sunday Times, August 16).

It is interesting to quote Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero when speaking on the occasion of the introduction of gay marriage in Spain:
"We are not legislating for remote, foreign and strange people. We are improving the opportunities for happiness for our neighbours, work colleagues and friends in order to build a more decent country, because a decent society doesn't humiliate its members."
