In a national referendum yesterday, Cubans approved a new "family law" code that will allow gay couples to marry, and to adopt children.
These changes faced opposition from Cuba's growing evangelical movement.
Which guarantees, as Hurricane Ian nears the island nation, that some local fundamentalist firebrand will claim the storm damage is God's wrath for the vote. What's Spanish for "Hey, it works for Graham and Robertson, doesn't it?"

Yet again, it's our fault. How do we live with ourselves?
According to Media Matters, right-wing media figures are having a fine old time pinning the Russian invasion of Ukraine on queers. If your head hurts trying to make the connection, I'll do it for you. Now that I've taken ibuprofen.
President Joe Biden's repeal of the ban on trans soldiers, along with the military's diversity training and general "wokeness," have all combined to weaken American forces to the point where Russian President Vladimir Putin saw his chance to invade Russia's neighbor.
On a Fox News show, Pete Hegseth claimed Americans have been "running around talking about genders and reparations," so "as a result, [Putin] thinks this is his moment to make an aggressive move."
Fox contributor Lisa Boothe tweeted, "America is weak. No one is afraid of us with dementia man in the White House and our focus is flying pride flags around the world."
Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire podcast said it was "not a coincidence that this has happened after Biden spent his first year in office focusing primarily on wokeness and intentionally making our military weaker and more feminine." He later added that Biden was attempting to “fill our military with lesbians who can’t do three pushups."
I wouldn't want to be Walsh when some lesbian sergeant challenges him to a pushup contest.
So thanks to integrating LGBTQ people into the military, American forces have been neutered, and Putin took advantage.
As these rightist talking heads blame us for the invasion, Christian fundamentalists, our usual accusers, haven't joined in.
Maybe they're just mad they didn't think of it first.

The record-breaking tornadoes that ripped through the South and Midwest last week caused unprecedented and tragic devastation.
Now America is left with urgent questions. How high will the death toll go? Did climate change play a role? When will gays be blamed?
