Equality comes to Denmark

Denmark is to legalise same-sex marriage, making it the eleventh country (and the sixth in Europe) to do so. Unlike the UK, where plans to do the same have met with hostility from organised religion, Denmark's churches seem to be on-side with it. The big question is how difficult it will be for those already in a Civil Union to transition should they want to.

Again, I have to ask: isn't it time we acted, and legislated for equality? Or are we going to continue to enshrine homophobia in law?
