Morning Sweep

The New York State Court of Appeals has decided that it will hear a case challenging New York's policy of recognizing marriages of same-sex couples that were legally performed out of state. The good news is that every single Appellate Court decision on this matter has been in favor of the current policy.

A recent Gallup poll found that Catholics are more gay friendly than non-Catholics.

Two mainline Protestant denominations--Lutherans and Presbyterians--are considering giving local congregations the freedom to marry same-sex couples.

The debate over several pieces of gay rights legislation--from ENDA to marriage equality--has stirred conversation in various Jewish communities, as JTA reports.

Sweden has become the seventh country in the world to pass a marriage equality bill.

In Singapore, when homosexuality is still illegal, an all-male interpretation of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" is causing quite a stir.
