Opponents of gay marriage warned of a long, protracted battle ahead as they prepare for a last-ditch attempt by peers to scupper the plans.
The proposals move to the Lords next month after being approved by MPs by a large majority despite the opposition of 130 Tories.
Sixty-five peers have already signed up to speak on the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) when it receives its second reading in the Lords on June 3 and many more are expected to follow suit.
The number, and the fact the Government has only allocated one debate to the subject, means the debate is set to drag on into the small hours. That raises the possibility of opponents attempting an ambush when the Lords is thinly-populated.
Lord Tebbit, the former Tory chairman and an outspoken critic of the plans, is among several ex-ministers who have applied to speak.
The Coalition for Marriage, which is leading resistance to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, accused David Cameron of being a marriage wrecker.
Colin Hart, its campaign director, said: If he thinks he got a rough ride in the Commons, just wait for the Lords. It will be a long, protracted battle which will only remind the voters that the Government isnt listening.
Mr Cameron insisted he was proud of the legislation but, in an apparent olive branch to traditionalist Tories, the Prime Minister promised there would be no more legislation on sensitive social issues.
He said: There will be young boys in schools today who are gay, who are worried about being bullied, who are worried about what society thinks of them, who can see that the highest parliament in the land has said that their love is worth the same as anybody else’s love and that we believe in equality.
I think they will stand that bit taller today and Im proud of the fact that has happened.

CANNES, France (AP) – One of the more buzzed-about films at the Cannes Film Festival, “Omar,” is set in the West Bank, and the Palestinian conflict is a key part of the plot.
But the film’s lead actor, Adam Bakri, says the location or political motif isn’t that important.
“The fact is that it is an international story, it happens in the West Bank but it doesn’t even say in the film that it happens in the West Bank,” he explained.
“So everybody can identify with it. Everybody can really go with it. I think it has a very strong political message but it is underneath, it is not straightforward, which I think is the genius of the film.”
“Omar,” which is being shown in the “A Certain Regard” section of Cannes, is directed by Hany Abu-Assad, director of the 2005 film “Paradise Now,” which won earned him an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe for best foreign film.
In his latest film, the Israeli-born director of Palestinian descent uses the political upheaval between Palestinians and Israel as the backdrop to a love story between characters Omar and Nadia. Omar must climb the separation wall between the Palestinian territories and Israel to see his love, and during one attempt, he is brutally attacked by an Israeli soldier. Afterward, he and his friends band together to kill an Israeli soldier in revenge, and the plot takes more twists.
Despite the political threads in the film, Abu-Assad said the film’s romantic plot is the key component.
“I don’t know anybody in this world who didn’t enter the experience of being madly in love with someone. Me too. And I am always fascinated by how people lose themselves in this subject and how they become insecure. Actual insecurity is the reason why people are in love, but also why this love ends up very badly,” he said.
“All love stories in history end up tragic, ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ ‘Othello,’ but also like in our modern history, ‘Casablanca,’ even the ‘Titanic’ you know, it is a tragic ending. ‘In the Mood for Love,’ that is a great love story,” Abu-Assad continued. “All of these examples gave me the inspiration to do something about my version of love and betrayal but involved in a political thriller because I love political thrillers. These two genres I tried to mix in a way that could become an exceptional movie.”

The new issue of Time magazine has declared it: “Gay Marriage Already Won: The Supreme Court Hasn’t Made Up Its MindBut America Has.” To go along with that statement, and a cover story by David von Drehle, they’re offering us two covers of same-sex couples mid-kiss, taken byTimephotographerPeter Hapak:Sarah Kate and Kristen Ellis-Henderson, who have been married since 2011, andRussell Hart and Eric LaBont, who have been engaged since 2010.
RELATED: Is This the Last Big Gay-Marriage Fight?
It makes sense, right? It’s a push further along the line of newsweekly covers discussing gay rights: from protesting to hand-holding to hugging. A kiss would have to follow at some point.And a kiss is one of the most basic images with which we can show love. It’s a universal experience, something anyone over the age of 12 or 14 can probably relate to. A kiss is also traditionally that thing that happens at the end of the wedding, when the vows have been spoken and the pronouncements have been made.The striking combination of this intimate moment shared between same-sex couples on a public cover is both timely and Time-ly (i.e., will, surely the editors hope, sell more magazines and get people talking).

But that same-sex couples kissing on a magazine cover is still cause for surprise, for shock, for discussions and reactions and double takes, that it would even be a cover, means in fact we’re not quite all the way there. The expectations of how the Supreme Court will ultimately rulestrike down DOMA but allow the lower court’s ruling to stand on Prop 8, meaning gay marriage would be legal in California but remain banned in other statesindicate that as well, even as public opinion has experienced a sea change, an inspiring open-mindedness and acceptance that seems all but sure to continue.

Online reactions to the covers appear to support that dual reality of what we want to achievethe point we should someday (soon, one hopes) reachand where we are as well. On Twitter, I’m seeing words like “provocative,” “sexy,” and “sure-to-be-controversial,” among the reactions. At BuzzFeed,Dorsey Shaw saysTimeis “sexualizing same-sex marriage.”Andrew Beaujon writes at Poynter that there was much discussion in the Time offices over the covers:In an editor’s note, Time Managing Editor Rick Stengel explains, “We had a long debate in our offices about this week’s cover images of two same-sex couples. Some thought they were sensationalist and too in-your-face. Others felt the images were beautiful and symbolized the love that is at the heart of the idea of marriage. I agree with the latter, and I hope you do too.”

Would such a debate have existed over a cover featuring heterosexual couples kissing? Would such a thing be considered “sensationalist”? Doubtful. Certainly, these rather chaste, lovely images of couples kissing are not even close to embodying the sensationalism of another cover I can think of.But also, there’d be little cause to put a hetero couple kissing on a cover, or at least, no reason that comes easily to my mind. I think these covers are great, but that we need them, regardless of Von Drehle’s article and the progress that’s been made, means gay marriage hasn’t, in fact, quite “won”yet. It won’t have won until marriage is legal for same-sex couples throughout the U.S., and recognized federally, too. It won’t have won until “gay marriage” is no different than any marriage. And it won’t have won until gay couples kissing wouldn’t even merit consideration from an editor at Time magazine as a cover, not because it’s too sensationalist, but because, well, why would you even do that? Don’t we see all sorts of combinations of people kissing everywhere? We’re all perfectly fine with that. Let’s move on to a discussion that gets people riled up! How we feel about PDA: Now that’s a topic that can apply to all of us.

The Obama administration has waded into the legal battle over California’s gay marriage ban, filing a brief with the Supreme Court Thursday evening that argues the state’s voters did not have the right to decide gay couples cannot wed.
In the brief, the Justice Department–which is not involved in the case–argues that the gay marriage ban violated same-sex couples’ constitutional guarantee to equal protection under the law and is the result of prejudice.
“Prejudice may not…be the basis for differential treatment under the law,” the brief said.
But the Obama administration stopped short of calling for a countrywide guarantee of equal access to marriage for gay people in the brief, keeping its arguments focused on California.
“Throughout history, we have seen the unjust consequences of decisions and policies rooted in discrimination,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. “The issues before the Supreme Court in this case … are not just important to the tens of thousands of Americans who are being denied equal benefits and rights under our laws, but to our Nation as a whole.
The California ballot initiative, called Proposition 8, was passed in 2008 with 52 percent of the vote and reversed an earlier state Supreme Court decision allowing gay marriage in the state. Thousands of gay couples in the state had already tied the knot when the ban passed.
In its brief, the Obama administration also argued that laws targeting gays and lesbians specifically should face “heightened scrutiny” from the courts, since gay people have faced a history of discrimination, share a trait they cannot change, and lack political power.
President Barack Obama announced last year that he believes gay couples should be allowed to get married but did not say they have a constitutional right to wed.
At his inaugural address in January, Obama seemed to suggest he did believe the government has a role in ensuring gay people are allowed to marry. “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the lawfor if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well,” he said then.
Opponents of a proposed law change that would allow gay couples to marry have appeared before a select committee looking into the issue.
A total of 20,000 submissions have been made on Labour MP Louisa Wall’s private members bill.
The debate is a global one.
President Obama has endorsed gay rights.
Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law and if we truly are created equal then surely the love we commit to one another should be equal as well.
But 800,000 French men and women took to the streets to oppose gay marriage last week.
Two of the debates most outspoken critics spoke before the select committee looking into a proposed change this evening.
Christian group Family First presented a petition signed by 72,000 who want marriage to remain between a man and a woman.
Group director Bob McCroskie said marriage rules are there for a reason.
Marriage rightly discriminates – a 14 year old cannot get married, three or four people cannot get married to each other, a person who is currently married cannot marry another person, a father cannot marry an adult daughter.

Cardinal Francis George issued a letter Tuesday calling laws permitting same-sex marriage a legal fiction and directing the local Catholic faithful to contact state legislators about a proposed Illinois gay marriage bill.
His statement comes days before state Rep. Greg Harris (D-Chicago) and state Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago) are expected to introduce a gay-marriage legalization measure into Januarys lame-duck session. Nine states currently recognize gay marriage, including Maryland, where same-sex couples first were wed legally just after midnight Tuesday.
It is physically impossible for two men or two women to consummate a marriage, even when they share a deep friendship or love, George writes in the letter, meant for inclusion in parish bulletins distributed Jan. 5-6. Does this mean nature is cruel or that God is unfair? No, but it does mean that marriage is what nature tells us it is and that the State cannot change natural marriage.
George writes that despite the churchs anti-gay marriage position, the Church itself is not anti-gay. He points to a number of groups for Catholic gays, including AGLO, a 25-year-old program that meets for Mass weekly at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Boystown.
[T]he Church welcomes everyone, respects each one personally and gives to each the spiritual means necessary to convert to Gods ways and maintain friendship with Christ, George writes, later continuing People live out their sexual identity in different ways, but the Church offers the means to live chastely in all circumstances, as the love of God both obliges and makes possible.
George called Illinois legislators moving to legalize same-sex marriage acting against the common good of society. We will all have to pretend to accept something that is contrary to the common sense of the human race.
LOS ANGELES (AP) Richard Adams, who used both the altar and the courtroom to help begin the push for gay marriage four decades before it reached the center of the national consciousness, has died, his attorney said Sunday.
After a brief illness, Adams died Dec. 17 at age 65 in the Hollywood home he shared with Tony Sullivan, his partner of 43 years, attorney Lavi Soloway told The Associated Press.
Adams and Sullivan met at a Los Angeles gay bar called “The Closet” in 1971, but their life and relationship would soon be on display for a worldwide audience.
They were granted a marriage license in 1975, but for years fought in vain to see it recognized by governments and a population for whom the idea of two married men was still strange and foreign. They were subjected to anti-gay slurs even from government agencies.
“They felt that in the end, the most important thing was their love for each other, and in that respect they won,” Soloway said. “No government or no law was ever able to keep them apart.”
The couple’s public life began when they heard about a county clerk in Boulder, Colo., named Clela Rorex, a pioneer in her own right who took the unprecedented step of giving marriage licenses to gay couples after learning from the district attorney’s office that nothing in Colorado law expressly forbade it.
Rorex’s office became what The New York Times soon after called “a mini-Nevada for homosexual couples.”
Among the first six couples to take advantage were Adams and Sullivan, who traveled to Colorado, had a ceremony at the First Unitarian Church of Denver and were granted a license from Rorex, before the state’s attorney general ordered her to stop giving them to gay couples. Rorex remained in contact with Adams throughout his life.
Adams and Sullivan’s primary motivation in marrying was to get permanent U.S. residency status for Sullivan, an Australian, and they promptly put in an application with what was then called the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
They received a one-sentence denial from INS that was stunning in its bluntness.
