  •  the DOMA case today involves Canada (2+ / 0-)

    does it not?  

    My point on that was however broader.  Spain, a Catholic nation, has marriage equality.

    Mexico City has it.

    Two states in Brazil, which is by far the country with the largest Catholic population (at least on paper), has two states, one of which is Sao Paolo, which have marriage equality and I  believe all or most of the rest of the states recognize those marriages.

    No, it will not happen in Muslim countries in the foreseeable future.

    But I suspect that it will continue to advance around the world.

    •  I'm not sure how DOMA involves Canada (0+ / 0-)
      •  case being argued today (0+ / 0-)

        the two women got married in Canada, lived in NY where same sex marriage is recognized.  When one died the other was hit with a 300K tax bill for inheritance that she would not have had to pay had DOMA not prevented the IRS from recognizing the marriage
