BERLIN, July 26, 2004 ( – German opposition leader, Guido Westerwelle, last week announced publicly that he is a practicing homosexual and that he is intent on attaining greater license for homosexuals, including the option to “marry.”  With full media fanfare, Westerwelle spoke publicly Saturday on the subject. He said that homosexuals should be given the same right to adopt a child as married heterosexual couples. Westerwelle criticized the ruling coalition government’s increased “rights” for same-sex couples as “half measures,” including a proposed law allowing same-sex partners of a parent to adopt their partner’s children.
