I can only imagine what marriage equality opponents will make of this.
Soldiers manning a checkpoint near Baghdad stopped a wedding convoy to find that the purported bride and groom were wanted terror suspects, an Iraqi Defense Ministry official said Monday….The soldiers became suspicious of the convoy because its members — save the “bride” — were all male and because one of the cars in the convoy did not heed orders to stop, the official said.
Also, soldiers said, the people in the car seemed nervous and the groom refused to lift his bride’s veil when soldiers asked him to, according to the official.
I don’t know why the bride wouldn’t lift the veil. From where I sit, he’s kinda cute. Of course, that’s easy to say from a distance. Especially given what happens to gays in U.S. occupied Iraq.
