UK begins Civil Partnerships!

As of yesterday, gay couples in the UK can now apply for "Civil Partnerships", which allow them the same rights as married couples. And the world is still standing! According to an article at CNN.com:

"A new law allowing same-sex civil partnerships will give homosexual couples the same property and inheritance rights as married heterosexual couples and entitles them to the same pension, immigration and tax benefits."

The United States are seriously out of step in regards to equal treatment of all its citizens.
