Gay Star News reports:
Egyptian Islamist group Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya has accused Egyptian lawmakers of opening the door to same-sex marriage after they amended Article 3 of the country’s constitution to ensure non-Muslims could not be punished under sharia law. Article 3 states that the personal and religious affairs of non-Muslim Egyptians should be governed by their own religious communities’ standards, not by those of Islam. Article 3 previously only referenced Christians and Jews as being exempt from sharia law, but the amended article covers all non-Muslims, something that Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya have claimed will lead to same-sex couples being able to marry in Egypt.
I think the idea that Egypt is about to legalize marriage equality is about as likely as the sun rising in the west tomorrow morning. But you know how crazy right wing conservatives can be.
