And here come the "creeping" laws.




One North Carolina county is turning to officials from neighboring counties after all four of its magistrates announced they would stop performing weddings for all couples — gay or straight.

In North Carolina, magistrates can legally opt out of performing marriage ceremonies after the state legislature passed a "religious exemptions law" shortly before the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality. www.advocate.com...


Ah the end of marriage. Saw this coming a mile away. YAY EQUALITY!!

Same sex marriage doesn't end it, it extends it.

The sanctity has long been gone out of it, divorce does that.

When the denial of doing any marriages spreads to the rest of the country you will be singing another tune. The only fair thing to do is if they want to stop doing marriages for Gay people is they will stop doing it for ALL PEOPLE to make is all nice and legal.

Hardly the end. Local area.

LEGAL marriage is a government contract. Now available to everyone, as it should be.

3 states have Legal Covenant marriage. Arizona, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Only 1% between 2000 - 2010 in Louisiana took advantage of this. That means 99% chose a regular Legal (non-religious) government marriage.

Futhermore, if the govt did stop issuing marriage licenses altogether, it would not stop religious marriages from being performed - they would just be in the same category as gay marriage was before the law was changed - not recognised by State.

But for all those religious hardcores that are arguing gay marriage just ruined something, their version of marriage was and still is ' A union between man and woman before God' i.e. not anything to do with state anyways.

Secular marriage law is a union between two adults of legal age (and of no relation, the distance of which is set by each state) ratified by the government.

The two were always separate - it's how anybody who happens to not be Christian has been getting married for a long time. Gay marriage just extended the definition to include same sex couples as well as the tradition opposite sex ones.

now if they can pass a law that you can't fire a gay person for getting married in the same state you work and live in.
