Ind. Decisions - "Judge Rejects Atheist Bid for Right to Perform Marriages"

Eric Berman of WIBC is reporting:

A federal judge has rejected an Indianapolis atheist group's bid for the right to perform marriages.

Judge Sarah Evans Barker says granting clergy the right to perform marriages is the kind of accommodation of religion the First Amendment protects, not a denial of rights to the nonreligious.
