A local district council in Northern Ireland has just passed a resolution endorsing marriage equality. Pink News reports:

The District Council in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, has passed a Sinn Fein motion in favour of “supporting the same rights and entitlements to civil marriages for all citizens of Fermanagh regardless of race, religion or sexuality.” The motion passed, despite strong DUP opposition, with one councillor stating his religious objections to allowing all citizens to marry.

This is the second time the council tried to pass the bill – it failed the first time, in September.
