Portugal's Parliament has passed a bill embracing marriage equality in the mostly Roman Catholic country. The proposed law now goes to conservative President Anibal Cavaco Silva who can ratify or veto it, but a veto can be overturned by Parliament. Its approval would make Portugal the sixth European country to honor marriages between same-sex couples. [Link]
