Merkel Votes Against Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

Angela Merkel has voted against same-sex marriage in Germany because she believes that “marriage is between a man and woman.”

Despite her opposition, the Bundestag voted to legalize equal marriage by 393 votes to 226, and the chancellor said she hoped the move would improve social cohesion.

“For me, marriage in German law is marriage between a man and a woman, and that is why I did not vote in favor of this bill today,” she told reporters moments after the historic vote.
