DCist reports the good news:

“No big surprises in the first D.C. Council vote on legalizing same-sex marriage: the Council today voted 11-2 to approve the “Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Amendment Act of 2009,” with Marion Barry (D-Ward 8 ) and Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7) the only dissenters.”
