Rhode Island House passes gay marriage bill
AP: The Rhode Island House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed legislation to allow gays and lesbians to marry.

The House voted 51-19 after an often emotional debate that touched on civil rights, religion and the nature of marriage. The bill now moves to the Senate, where both supporters and opponents of gay marriage say it is difficult to predict the bill’s fate.
