Gay marriage law removed gender references in the marriage laws and will also give the right to churches to choose if they will celebrate or not the ceremonies.

Democrat Keiffer Mitchell, one of its sponsors, warned: "The Senate has been congenial. The House is going to be a lot more volatile. There are more personalities in the mix. I’m concerned about the tone."
