Portuguese President Says YES to Gay Marriage

President Anibal Cavaco Silva may be a conservative, but with his signature on a same-sex marriage law — because, he said today in televised remarks, vetoing it would only delay the bill that would go back to Parliament and get the votes to overcome his veto — he makes Portugal Europe’s sixth country to get the M-word after Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Norway. Not that he’s terribly happy about it, given it goes against his “personal convictions.” [AP]
