MPs have approved legislation for same-sex marriage in England and Wales, despite the opposition of dozens of Conservative MPs.
The Commons voted in favour of the The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, by 400 to 175, a majority of 225, at the end of a full day's debate on the bill.
Prime Minister David Cameron has described the move as "an important step forward" that strengthens society.

Commentary: Conservatives need to wake up & see the threat.
“Social” and “fiscal” issues the same to those out to destabilize society.
May 4, 2012
When the radical homosexual organizations and the “Occupy” movement team up to brutally stop a Tea Party rally, what else do you need to know? They are clearly natural allies in the effort to destabilize our society.
A vocal minority of Tea Party people in Massachusetts were skittish and upset when the Tea Party Coalition decided to include so-called “social issues” in their repertoire of topics for that event. “It will hurt our brand” or “it will alienate people” or “it’s not what the Tea Party is about” were some whines we all heard.
Well, guess what? They rioters see it all as one big movement. They understand that “social issues” and “fiscal issues” are two sides of the same coin that can radically change America. (And of course, that’s how every philosopher from Marx to Jefferson saw it, because it is so.) A nation’s fiscal policies are merely the product of its overall morality and ideology. To have a solid constitutional government along with a population that can’t control its passions or morality is simply a pipe dream.
(In fact, the rioters jeered Carla Howell, a fiscal-issues-only Libertarian speaker who took pains to inform them she is pro-gay marriage! just as loudly that day!)
But more importantly, this event should make it clear that as soon as the Tea Party or anyone gets in the radicals’ way, this is what will happen. These people have no rules except to destroy those who disagree with them. You think you can agree with them on “gay rights” but disagree with them on taxes? Think again. With these people it’s all or nothing. And so it should also be with those who are fighting for what’s right.
Title is misleading.
Almost 150 members of the Conservative Party refused to follow the order of David Cameron.
Reminder: in France the anti-homosexual marriage fration gained control of the UMP party (corresponds to the Conservative Party in the UK) in November.
They organized the largest demonstration of the last decades in France two weels ago.
Sick. God will not be mocked.
150 conservative MP's voted against it, including two ministers. Interestingly, even a few of the socialists voted against it too.
