Douchebag of the day: Mariano Rajoy wants to over turn gay marriage in Spain…

Mariano Rajoy and his conservative Popular Party (PP) are expected to win control of Parliament in a landslide on Sunday as Spain struggles under piles of debt and sky-high unemployment.

Socialists, who swept into office in 2004, legalized gay marriage over the objections of the Catholic Church and the PP, which filed a legal challenge to the law based on technical grounds.

The 56-year-old Rajoy has previously said he believes the law is unconstitutional and that he would “change” it even if the nation’s highest court ruled it constitutional.

“I will listen to the court, but I don’t like the fact that there is gay marriage and I don’t think it is constitutional,” he told daily El Pais. “What I don’t like is the word ‘marriage.’”

Like i said, douchebag of the day…

While repeal of the law seems doubtful, gay and lesbian couples in the country have taken the threat seriously.
