Rhode Island House Passes Gay Marriage Bill

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island House has overwhelmingly passed legislation to allow gay couples to marry.
The House passed the legislation 51-19 Thursday following an emotional debate that touched on religion, civil rights and the nature of marriage.
The bill now moves to the Senate, where supporters and opponents say its fate is difficult to predict.
Rhode Island is now the only state in New England that doesn't allow same-sex couples to wed.
