Whew, Canada just squeaked by Spain in the equality derby. Today, Spain became the fourth country on the planet to extend equal rights to its gay citizens. (I blogged about this when it was in the works; it was finalized into law yesterday.)
Spain's new legislation is especially welcome and significant, as Spain is traditionally a Catholic country. This is an incalculable act of defiance against the Church's death grip on modern life. Las felicitaciones a España.
