Gay marriage takes first step

Well hoorah for that!  Yesterday parliament actually approved the first steps to make same-sex marriage legal in England.  At bloody last, I say.  Of course, there's a way to go yet, but hopefully this significant component of our population will get the same marriage rights as the rest of us.  My own MP, Oliver Heald, disagrees with me, but I can't see how this will affect traditional marriage at all.

My only regret is that they still have that daft bit forbidding the Anglican Church and some other religious bodies from carrying out the ceremonies.  If the clergy doing the thing are willing, why should it be banned?
