"Gay couples are to be allowed civil partnership ceremonies in churches, Britain's government said Thursday -- erasing some of the last remaining distinctions between gay partnerships and traditional marriages. Although marriage and civil partnership are already similar under British law, civil partnership ceremonies are currently not allowed to have religious references, are banned from churches, and must take place in a public building overseen by a government registrar."
