YAKIMA, Wash. -- Now that same-sex couples will soon be able to get married in Yakima, we wanted to see if local churches will go along.

Churches legally have the right to refuse the service. A lot of them around here say they won't allow gay weddings.

However, Rainbow Cathedral says it will marry any two people in love.

"I'm so passionate about it because you don't have to look like me, you don't have to act like me, you don't have to talk like me, you don't even have to bathe like me," said Reverend Bill Poores of Rainbow Cathedral. "And god forbid somebody tell me that you have to love who I love, other than loving everybody equally."

We did learn Yakima County has until December Sixth to adjust the wording on the current marriage license application. It's not clear what those changes are.

Approval for same sex marriage is holding on to 52 % support. If this holds up, the marriages can start December 6th.
