Really? WOW!<quoted text>
Ministers/rabbis/pastors/pries ts can ONLY marry with the blessings of the State. They can't pronounce you "married" unless you have a license/certificate from the State. That is one reason why the word 'marriage' is important. Marriage is a LEGAL contract. A so-called 'religious marriage' is just a ceremony.... and they aren't called marriages. They're called "commitment ceremonies" or "spiritual unions." Besides, in the eyes of the 'God of the buybull,' if you have sex with someone, you are then married to them.
What a silly jackass.
