In a first House of Commons vote, lawmakers voted 400 to 175 in support of the legislation. There was strong support from the left-leaning Labour Party and Liberal Democrats party, but many Conservatives rejected the proposals.
The bill will have to go through more detailed parliamentary debates and a vote in the House of Lords, where a vote in favor is likely given the strong support Tuesday. If it becomes law, the proposed bill would enable same-sex couples to get married in both civil and religious ceremonies, provided that the religious institution consents.

Kraft’s Facebook page causing giant comment fight On Monday, Kraft posted the above picture to its Facebook page as part of its 100-year anniversary celebrations for the Oreo (each day they’re posting a new “current event” cookie). Mixed with the slogan “Proudly support love!,” the cookie picture created a firestorm of comments.
Although a large portion of the comments were positive, there were hundreds, if not thousands, who were very angry that Kraft would take this particular political position.
On the negative side, comments ranged from “Guess what I’m boycotting now? Don’t get political Oreo.” to “Being gay is totally wrong And should be a crime.”
