South Africa Parliament Oks gay marriage.

More power to 'em! This is quite a big deal for a country where homosexuality is taboo. The bill that was passed is simple. It recognizes gay marriage, however a pastor does not have to marry a sam-sex couple if it conflicts with their beliefs.
Part of the bill states, 'voluntary union of two persons, which is solemnized and registered by either a marriage or civil union." There is no mention of the sex of the couples.
Why can't the United States pass something this simple. We apparently want to pass a bill to protect marriage, but what exactly would that be protecting. It would be protecting something that has a 50% FAILURE rate. Sounds like that really needs protection. If so many people want to 'hate on the gays' why not let gays get married, so they can get divorced and go through law suits as well!
I'm done ranting now.

The main reason why that passed is because the city: Cape Town. It is consider the gay capital in Africa. It is the only place in Africa were homosexuals are recongized. To use it as an example would be foolish because of the South African culture. It is very different from the USA were even with the change it is unlikely to be a bill.
