They're stalling and plotting against me
Torres, it seems to me, skips over the reality of una ley de convivencia civil. What sort of law is being called for? It's a law that involves more than one person (or it wouldn't be convivencia) in a civil situation that is recognized by law. It wouldn't be marriage on the RC understanding of marriage as a sacrament, but it's a way to extend the civil benefits and privileges of marriage to same-sex couples.
