.- A justice of the peace in the Argentinean city of General Pico said this week she will not marry homosexual couples despite the country’s new law legalizing such unions. 
Marta Covella told reporters she would not marry gay couples “even if it costs me my job, even if it costs me my life.”
“They can accuse me of what they want.  God has spoken, and I am going to obey Him to the letter, even if it costs me my job, even if it costs me my life, because what God says comes first,” she said.
Covella said her stance was based on her Christian beliefs.  “God loves all people but He does not approve of the evil things that people do.  And a homosexual relationship is something evil in the eyes of God,” she said.
