Brazil is not quite there on marriage equality, yet – a conservative political party has challenged the recent court ruling that would legalize gay marriage in the country. Edge Boston reports:

The Social Christian Party filed its appeal Tuesday with the Supreme Court arguing that the council’s ruling was unconstitutional because Congress has not approved it. One of the party’s leaders is Congressman Marco Feliciano, an evangelical pastor who is president of the Commission for Human Rights and Minorities. He has said on his Twitter page that AIDS is a “gay cancer.”

Hopefully the challenge is dealt with quickly so Brazil’s gay and lesbian couples can officially marry throughout the country.
