(Ynet News) The state of Israel does not recognize same-sex marriage, and therefore will refuse to register as married same-sex couples who got marries abroad, the State wrote in response to a petition on the matter filed to the High Court of Justice Sunday.
Although this may seem like a rejection of homosexual rights by the Jewish state, apparently Israel does recognize "partners" for financial and social reasons. The couple who pushed this case forward were from Canada, who tried to use their marriage their to force consent amongst the Israeli government.
Homosexuality is considered an abomination by Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths within the region, and such a law may have erupted violence within the region amongst some of the groups. But should Israel recognize same-sex marriages from other nations? Or should it respect the views of its citizens who hold towards certain faiths?
