But this is unlikely to take effect till 2015, right? It's good that things are happening there, but still needs to be put into a little bit of perspective.
The decision went against a government run public consultation where two thirds (of 77,000 participants) were against the notion. I don't know what that equates to as an actual representation of Scotland, but it just goes to show that there is still work to be done, especially when the Archbishop of Glasgow just made some remarks about the untimely death of an MP being the result of him being gay.
Still, it's good that the government is working for minorities in order to spur on progress.
