Gay? Live in Brazil? Thinking of getting hitched? Well, for you, I’m definitely not the bearer of good news: despite fully accepted by the courts, same-sex marriage faces growing opposition in Congress. So you may want to skip the pop-the-question part of it and rush your partner to the nearest notary public. As for those of you who believe marriage should be only between a man and a woman, stick to your guns because your cavalry might be coming in the form of Evangelical Christian politicians. They’re many. They’re powerful. They speak for millions of worshipers/voters, on whom televangelist pastors wield such great influence. And if these eager representatives have their way, very soon, gay marriage will be history in this country.
