"We must stop this hypocrisy because we know they exist. There are men living with men, women living with women, and many times they live extraordinarily well.

They build a life together, they work together and I am favourable. One thing that amazes me is why politicians who are against do not refuse their votes, why Brazil does not refuse their income tax. The important thing is for them to be Brazilian citizens, for them to be committed to the nation. I support the civil union."

-- Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, President of Brazil, on civil unions.
