The European Parliament has voted 401 – 220 in favour of a report which calls for same-sex marriage and/or civil unions to be recognized across all EU states, says the Sydney Star Observer.

OK. So hypothetical question here: Because of laws precluding a British royal from marrying a Catholic, if Great Britain’s Prince William married..say… the gay Catholic Andrew Sullivan, Prince William would be ineligible to take the crown, not because he married a man but because Sullivan was Catholic?

Yeah, this European Union thing is working out great.
