Brazilian Judge Declares Civil Unions Unconstitional


An update from Brazil:

A Brazilian judge has nullified the civil union of two homosexuals in the state of Goias, and has declared that a recent decision by the nation’s Supreme Federal Tribunal legalizing the practice is “unconstitutional.”

Jeronymo Pedro Villas Boas, a municipal judge, says the nation’s highest court “went beyond the limits” of its authority when it recently decreed that homosexuals have a right to civil unions, directly contradicting the Brazilian Constitution. He called the decision “illegitimate and unconstitutional” and ordered the couple’s union struck from the registry. --LifeSiteNews
