Newly elected Spanish prime minister pledges to legalize gay marriage MADRID — Incoming Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapaterosaid last week the nation will legalize gay marriage and give gay couples equal rights, Reuters reported. Spain is one of Europe's most Catholic countries, and the move likely will spark debate, since the Vatican staunchly opposes same-sex unions, according to Reuters. Spanish dictator Francisco Franco banned homosexuality, and the nation's Catholic bishops already vocally oppose adoption of children by gay couples, Reuters reported. But Zapatero confirmed his intentions during debate in parliament that leads up to the vote to confirm him as prime minister, according to Reuters. "The moment has finally arrived to end once and for all the intolerable discrimination which many Spaniards suffer because of their sexual preferences," he said, Reuters reported. "Homosexuals and transsexuals deserve the same public consideration as heterosexuals. As a result we will modify the Civil Code to recognize their equal right to marriage with the resulting effects over inheritance, labor rights and social security protection." Singapore officials deny registration to gay group SINGAPORE — People Like Us, a gay support group, last week was refused registration by the Singaporean government, according to a column by its executive director published in the Straight Times. The Registrar of Societies in Singapore rejected the application of People Like Us, whose leaders say it has more than 1,000 members, and the group was ordered to dismantle, the Times reported. The registrar called People Like Us "likely to be used for unlawful purposes or for purposes prejudicial to public peace, welfare or good order," according to news reports. Despite softening its stance on some issues related to gays, Singapore maintains a law that bans gay sex as an "act of gross indecency," news outlets reported. Vivian Balakrishnan, government minister of for national development, told reporters that the nation is not ready to accept gay rights organizations. British lawmaker resigns post after debate over gay rights LONDON A conservative British politician resigned his post on the Welsh assembly's equal opportunities committee after a heated debate over gay rights, the BBC News reported. David Davies walked out of a committee meeting after he was criticized by other representatives for questioning Stonewall Cymru, a gay rights group, according to the BBC. Davies expressed opposition to gay adoption and school material on homosexuality, the BBC reported. "The issue was that I put questions to Stonewall Cymru and it was the reaction of other members I objected to, especially the minister [Social Justice Minister Edwina Hart] who accused me of having offensive and unacceptable views," Davies told the BBC. "I find that offensive and unacceptable because I really have to have the freedom to speak out." He decried what he called a "total waste of time" in the committee hearing regarding the gay rights group, the BBC reported. "The cult of political correctness means that if you do speak out and ask embarrassing questions, then you are going to find yourself being accused of racism, sexism, homophobia or some other form of 'ism' by everyone else," Davies told the BBC.
