    “Clergy have always been free to set their own rules for marriage, whether it’s refusing to marry divorced people or refusing to marry interfaith couples. The freedom not to marry same-sex couples is no different.” This is precisely the distinction the church is conveniently forgeting. I was always told that unless you have a church wedding, you are not married – civil marriage is irrelevant (it is required by law, but is not enough).Why has equality before the law in matters of civil marriage now suddenly become a church business? They can still refuse their marriage to anyone they want, as they have always done.Hypocrits.
