The first civil union between three people in Brazil has generated outrage from the religious community there, WORLD News Service reports. The civil union, conducted by a "notary officer," is between a man and two women; it happened about three months ago but was just made public this week. The Brazilian Supreme Court cleared the way for civil unions in May 2011, with a 10-0 vote that declared same-sex unions a "family entity."
