    Well it doesn't look like it's law yet, correct? It passed the Commons, but still needs Parlimentary approval. Does David Cameron also need to sign the final bill to make it a law, similar to design of the U.S. federal government? My apologies for lack of knowledge on British politics. Regardless, if so it appears he's supportive, so that's good news.

    I know that the PM is also a member of parliament (Always in Commons) and has the ability to introduce/vote on legislation.

    Commons is one House of Parliament . It goes to the House of Lords next where they will either pass/reject it or place a hold on it for further debate (much like the US Senate). While I'm confident that it will ultimately become law, the House of Lords is the place that it would most likely be tied up due to the large concentration if traditionalists in that house. A good majority of lords are also prominent members of the Church of England.

    Can't believe how backward Russia still is with their gay laws and everything else. Especially keeping in mind that this week Russian official said that they may need to mark Finland as a country dangerous for Russians. Same with the ban of adoptions to USA.

    Which just goes to show you that conservatism and prejudice can exist without religion.

    Of course it can, but I'm missing your point because in todays Russia the church and the leading party "United Russia" are very closely connected.

    Thanks for the quick lesson! If the bill passes the House of Lords, does it then immediately become law, or does it need a final signature/approval?

    It needs the Royal Assent, which the monarch is required to give. However, she can take her sweet time (or not) with it to send a message that she does not like it (or does like it).

    Also, voting in the House of Lords is more symbolic than anything since all it really does is delay passage since the Commons can force bills through after two (or maybe it's one) rejections from the Lords.
