<http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/11/26/iraq.bride/index.html>Can 
This Marriage Be Saved?

Same-sex marriage has come to Iraq, CNN reports:

Soldiers manning a checkpoint near Baghdad stopped a wedding convoy 
to find that the purported bride and groom were wanted terror 
suspects, an Iraqi Defense Ministry official said Monday. . . .

The soldiers became suspicious of the convoy because its 
members--save the "bride"--were all male and because one of the cars 
in the convoy did not heed orders to stop, the official said.

But the bride was male as well:

Upon inspecting the convoy, soldiers found a stubbly-faced man, 
Haider al-Bahadli, decked out in a white bride's dress and veil.

Bahadli was wanted on terror-related charges, as was his groom, Abbas 
al-Dobbi, the official said.

This is only an anecdote, though; it would be irresponsible and 
homophobic to conclude that there is a link between same-sex marriage 
and terrorism.
