Huffington Post report here, including:
The House of Lords has crushed an attempt to kill off the gay marriage Bill by 390 votes to 148 - a majority of 242 in favour of same-sex weddings.This came after the Archbishop of Canterbury [a] spoke against the bill and [b] kicked up a fuss by saying the marriage debate was "not at the heart a faith issue" ... something that makes sense here in the U.S. where we have separation of church and state but not so much where the CofE is the established church of the realm.
In other news, the SCOTUS clock continues to tick here in the states with the days dwindling down for the release of the marriage equality rulings by the Supreme Court. Decision Day will be: June 10, 17, 24, 25, 26 or 27 -- and (unlike the 9th Circuit Court) SCOTUS doesn't give advance info on what they're ruling on when so stay tuned.
And "tick tock equality."
