"Colombia's highest court is paving the way for same-sex couples to marry in the conservative Roman Catholic nation. Gay couples in Colombia were already allowed to form civil unions. But Thursday's Constitutional Court ruling by a 6-3 vote would give gay couples marriage rights as well. Activists with the support of President Juan Manuel Santos had argued that denying same-sex couples the right to wed is discriminatory." (04/07/16)
