Oklahoma House passes bill for ministers to refuse same-sex marriage

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma House has approved legislation that grants immunity from civil liability to ministers who refuse to officiate a same-sex marriage.

House members voted 88-7 Thursday for the bill by Republican Rep. David Brumbaugh. The measure now goes to the state Senate.
