Britain: Gay Marriage by 2015?

In some good news from our friends across the pond, legislators in Britain are pushing to legalize same-sex marriage. This effort, led by Liberal Democrat Lynne Featherstone and supported by Prime Minister David Cameron, may result in same-sex couples being able to legally wed by the year 2015. According to a 2005 Gallup Poll, 61% of Britons said they felt that "homosexual behavior" is morally acceptable, while a 2009 poll conducted by The Times revealed that 61% of Britons favored equal rights for gays and lesbians, including the right to marry.
