Did Colombia’s Constitutional Court Turn Down The Gay Marriage Lawsuit Because It Was Too Weak?

With Colombia’s Constitutional Court yesterday voting 5-4 to dismiss a lawsuit that would’ve put same-sex marriage up before the nation’s highest court, The Gays are gearing up for a protest. The lawsuit filed last year sought to update the country’s description of marriage from “a solemn contract through which a man and a woman unite” to a gay-inclusive definition. Not that the Court is ruling out a gay marriage case entirely: “[N]othing is final, and it is possible to insist on civil marriage for same sex couples in front of the court,” says Judge Mauricio Gonzalez Cuervo in the decision, “but with more detailed arguments because this article will play a vital role within Colombia’s constitution.” So much for that “gay travel hotspot” superlative.
