HANOI, Vietnam (AP) -- Dinh Thi Hong Loan grasps her girlfriend's hand, and the two gaze into each other's love-struck eyes. Smiling, they talk about their upcoming wedding - how they'll exchange rings and toast the beginning of their lives together.

The lesbians' marriage ceremony in the Vietnamese capital won't be officially recognized, but that could soon change.

I don’t understand this global obsession with sexual deviants “marrying” each other. I think the planet Earth has gone flippin’ mad!

Vietnam would be the last country I thought this would happen in. What could be next but an uptick in muslims where the current percentage is less than 2%?

Vietnam has its version of Oprah Winfrey Show. I cannot remember her name but she covers con traversal issues like Oprah did. It's a nationally broadcasted show.

I was having breakfast in a cafe in Saigon and they had her program on the tv. The episode was this guy who had a sex change and the VN government refused to acknowledge his “new” sex therefore would not issue him a revised passport reflecting that the subject is a “female”.

Oh, the Vietnamese Oprah and her audience felt so bad for the poor “lady”. The issue was, should the Vietnamese government recognize trans gendered people?

The problem the wierdo had was that with “his” old passport he could leave Vietnam to visit other countries but he could not get into other countries as they would not acknowledge the “female” as the same person who's on the passport which is a male.

Until very recently being gay was actually illegal in Vietnam though they turned their heads (unless you were acting it out in public - basically their society was don't ask don't tell) I don't know what happened to that. I blame people like Oprah.

At one time it was one of the last non-Muslim countries on my list to do that as well.

They hang child molesters there. Let's hope they don't change that.

How very sad! Asian cultures generally have stuck to a very strong traditional family emphasis. Must the whole world get the Western cultural poison that has destroyed us?

the Dali Lama is opposed to same sex marrisge but he does not speak for all Buddhist sects

I am guessing these wymen are Buddhist by birth or by culture, if not practicing. I guess the question is which “wife” gets to take care of the in-laws?

Vietnam had communist infiltrations since the 1940’s. Commies are liberals, liberals are faggots.

I hope you realize every time you get down in that gutter you just marginalize the traditional marriage viewpoint and provide ammunition to those you oppose.

It's the appointed road to the end of the Age. But it will get much worse. Don't take my word for it.
