BERLIN, GERMANY – JUNE 30: Supporters of gay rights gathered outside the Chancellery cut a cake to celebrate a vote at the nearby Bundestag in which parliamentarians approved a new law legalizing gay marriage in Germany on June 30, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. In a historic vote following emotional statements by parliamentarians both for and against the issue Germany is transferring homosexual relationships from a privileged partnership to marriage with the same rights as marriage between heterosexual couples.

Under an amendment tagged “Marriage for all,” the German parliament has passed a law legalizing same sex marriage, granting full rights to gay couples, including rights to adopt a child.

The German legal code has been changed to say “Marriage is entered into for life by two people of different or the same sex.”

The bill was approved by the upper house, after the lower house passed the bill by a margin of 393-226.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel however voted against the bill, saying, “For me, marriage in German law is marriage between a man and a woman and that is why I did not vote in favour of this bill today.”

“I hope that the vote today not only promotes respect between different opinions but also brings more social cohesion and peace,” she told reporters.

      Genesis 5.2 King James Bible
      Male and female created he them; and blessed them,
      It takes an egg and a sperm. Two men cant produce this equation neither can two women.

      I stand with GOD.
      Aberration is not normal.
      Homosexuality is not a panacea for heartbreak.

      Well first of all, we are already overpopulating the world anyways so maybe we don’t need every one getting together to have children. Actually more importantly, is everything about children? Not every one enters marriage for children as you could be in a marriage only for companionship, so you have to try another argument that doesn’t involve children or the Bible, which again is just a book that has NO value whatsoever to certain people in other societies (I don’t know when you people will finally get this). But anyways, provincial minds like yours cannot fully understand these things, now can you?

    I hope it comes to a point were incestous heterosexual and incestous gay marriages are legalised…I hope it gets to a point were 18 and over year old son can marry his mother and 18 and over year old daughter can marry her father… I hope it comes to a point were gay polygamy is legalised…I hope it comes to a point were bisexual polygamy/polyandry is legalised…I hope it gets to a point were adopted son/daughter of gay couple can marry gay parents when they become adults, hence gay polygamy or gay polyandry as the case may be
    I like the fact that mankind now has progressive logic and has ignored God ( that is if they believe in God sef…lol) freedom should not have responsibility and decency…consenting adults should choose any other consenting adult(s) as life partners irrespective of gender, blood/biological relationship etc… should consenting age even be 18? Who came up with that? Why not 16? Or even 15? What does an 18 year old know and have(biologically) that a 16 year old doesn’t? What indices were used in selecting 18 as age of consent? Freedom!
    Oluwa have mercy on us please

      There are demons responsible for your rebellion against God. Ask the Holy Spirit for help and deliverance. He is able to set you free and give you a transformed mind and heart. Bless. Xxx

      That will never happen because animals cannot give consent. Having sex with a consenting human partner of any gender will NEVER be the same as bestiality. Try another argument or better yet, sit down and learn.

    @Ama.. BESTIALITY IS NOT TOTALLY ILLEGAL IN GERMANY. MY FEAR IS THAT IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING IS BECOMING PERMISSIBLE, THERE’S A POSSIBILITY OF HUMAN-ANIMAL HYBRID BEING IN A FEW DECADES TIME THROUGH MEDICAL SCIENCE, AND GOVERNMENTS ALLOWING IT AS PART OF CITIZEN’S HUMAN RIGHTS. PYSCHOTROPIC SUBSTANCES ARE BEING DECRIMINALIZED HERE AND THERE. NEVADA STATE IN THE US IS THE LATEST TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA FOR RECREATIONAL USE…

      Oh gosh you’re so ignorant I’m not even going to waste my time trying to educate you. How can human gametes combine with animal gametes to make a hybrid? How Sway? Didn’t you learn anything in biology class? Ugh I can’t even…

    Twisted ideology. In other news, our ‘religious’ country won’t pass the law.
    So, you guys better relocate to those countries.
