Slovenia Rejects Same-Sex Marriage In Referendum

In a referendum in the central European nation of Slovenia yesterday, voters by a margin of 63% to 37% rejected same-sex marriage.  Politco reports that the overall voter turnout for the referendum was only 35.6%.  This defeat of a bill passed by Parliament last March returns the country to its old rules that allow civil partnership but not adoption of children by same-sex couples.
