Update on recognition of same sex relationships

Today Britain becomes the fifth country in the world to recognise the equality of same sex and heterosexual relationships as its Civil Partnerships Act comes into effect. South Africa will soon become the sixth country and first Less Developed Country to do so. I also imagine it will be the only African country to recognise same sex relationships for some time to come. The conservative nature and influence of the Christian churches in Africa thwarts any attempt to recognise that sexual orientation is a human right.
