Germany Schedules Vote On Marriage Equality For Friday

Chancellor Angela Merkel

Wow, this happened fast.

According to the AP, the German Parliament has scheduled a vote to legalize same-sex marriage this Friday.

In the wake of Chancellor Angela Merkel's recent comments indicating she could see legislators viewing the issue as a "decision of conscience," Parliament's legal committee has approved the vote.

Merkel has announced she will allow the vote to occur without any "party whip" and to vote their conscience.

Marriage equality is expected to pass easily according to sources.

Germany has allowed same-sex couples to enter into civil partnerships since 2001.
