Brazil: First Civil Union Between Three People Sparks Outrage

The first civil union between three people in Brazil has generated outrage from the religious community there, WORLD News Service reports. The civil union, conducted by a "notary officer," is between a man and two women; it happened about three months ago but was just made public this week. The Brazilian Supreme Court cleared the way for civil unions in May 2011, with a 10-0 vote that declared same-sex unions a "family entity."
