      After court ruling, more churches in Germany consider same-sex
      blessings


      Amsterdam (ENI). As same-sex couples in Germany begin practising
      their new right to legally register their partnerships, a number
      of Protestant churches are considering whether to offer church
      blessings for such unions. Already two of Germany's 24 Protestant
      regional churches - in North Elbia and in the Rhineland - offer
      such a blessing. These developments follow the enacting on 1
      August of Germany's new partnership law allowing what have been
      dubbed "gay marriages". [436 words, ENI-01-0305]
