Bermuda repeals same-sex marriage

Bermuda’s governor approved a bill reversing the right of gay couples to marry, despite a supreme court ruling last year authorising same-sex marriage.

Governor John Rankin said he was seeking to balance opposition to same-sex marriage on the socially conservative island while complying with European court rulings that ensure recognition and protection for same-sex couples in the territory.
