Good argument by the faith-based organizations. Their freedom to discriminate is being trampled on. Boo hoo. LOL

This shows just how clueless faith-based organizations are. They have nothing to do with marriage
.
There isn't a church; synagogue; or mosque anywhere in America that sells marriage licenses
.
A $35 marriage license is a government document sold in city halls and courthouses by government clerks. No religion needed or mentioned
.
Judges and Justices of the Peace solemnize marriages; sometimes for free. No preacher necessary
.
This is to assure marriage equality for hindus; jews; buddhists; muslims; catholics; mormons; holy rollers; fundies; and people from all cultures and nationalities; not just for christians
.
It's the American Way

They should do away with step 2. Once you get your license your marriage should be legally final. Whether you "solemnize" it or not should be irrelavent

You made a typo, you mean "sodomize" right?

If you find sodomy everywhere, even when it's not there, you might want to talk to a therapist.

How is a clergyman finalizing a state license a separation of church and state?

A clergyman's signature has to be registered with the state the same as a notary
