Chile’s Constitutional Court Rejects Gay Marriage in 9-1 Vote


The Santiago Times:

Chile’s Constitutional Tribunal will officially release their verdict next week rejecting as “inapplicable” arguments for the legalization of same-sex marriage, according to an early report by El Mercurio on Friday.

The year-old case sought to challenge the decision of a Civil Registry official who refused to grant a marriage license to a same-sex couple. The 9-1 vote involved four divergent opinions from the tribunal’s judges, some of which left the door open to future legalization.
