Again, marriage is a religious rite, and requiring pastors and priests to marry according to state law is an infringement of the First Amendment. After all, they can't perform legal divorces or adjudicate child custody petitions or divide property. Let religions marry whom they wish, and let the state be the arbiter of civil unions, which is the contract of the marriage license.


J. Reed - if you read my next post by Huntsman, this is exactly what he proposes. We need to preserve religious freedom and not force religious leaders to act against their beliefs. But - if someone wishes to marry and their church, etc. does not allow, then a secular individual (judge) can perform it.

I think we are on the same page here.
