Apparently politicians from all parties are agreeing with this measure, so it's likely that the project would become a law by late November. Even though some countries in Latin America are more prune to Catholicism, here is different and fortunately the Church is pretty separated from the State (ever since the Catholic Church blessed the dictatorship we suffered in the '70s and '80s), so I believe it won't be an issue.

“Noone would prevent legal marriage to two people professing different religions, belonging to different communities or being from different countries. Yet, those who express their sexual orientation being different to heterosexuality have this right denied, acclaimed in the Convention on Human Rights that has Constitutional rank ever since 1994” said deputy Silvia Augsburguer.
