Same-sex marriage and freedom of religion (2)
This letter to the editor argues that whenever secular law disagrees with a church's marriage law, that church still "has a constitutional right to follow its beliefs," even when that church is receiving public funds. Therefore, I propose to start my own church, get a public contract, and then declare ex cathedra that no marriage is valid in the eyes of the Invisible Pink Unicorn unless the spouses have paid our church an honorarium of $50,000. If anyone dares criticize me, I'll play the religious-bigotry card.
