#Scotland ” Government Votes to `Allow Same Sex-Marriages’ though `Bill Faced Opposition’ from `Catholic and Presbyterian’ Church’s”

#AceUKNews says Scotland voted Tuesday to allow same-sex marriages, making it the 17th country to approve gay marriage.
The Scottish government called the bill – which was passed overwhelmingly by parliament – a major step for equal rights. Same-sex wedding ceremonies will begin later this year, Reuters reported.
The bill faced opposition from the Scottish Catholic Church and the Presbyterian Church of Scotland, though the law will not require either to wed same-sex couples on their premises.
