An anti-gay marriage group said today's House of Lords vote showed there was "huge opposition to almost every part of the bill".
Peers rejected a bid to block the Government's plan to legalise gay marriage by 390 votes to 148.
The Government may have won the vote today but what was clear from the debate was the huge opposition to almost every part of the Bill.
We will continue to campaign to save traditional marriage and today's vote and the concerns expressed by many peers mean we will be able to introduce safeguards that will protect teachers, registrars, chaplains and anyone who works in the public sector. If the Government refuse to accept these changes, they risk losing the legislation at third reading.
