Section 3. No member of the clergy nor lay official of any church or religion may be required to solemnize any marriage, provide services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for a purpose related to the solemnization, formation, or celebration of any marriage, or treat any marriage as valid for any purpose if such action would cause any such entity or individual to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.If there is a loophole built into the bill, I hope someone would point it out to me.
My guess is that the muddied waters of SB 67 actually comes from the backlash that the bill had received and that the GOP wanted to put out that fire. Even the "journalist" Pat Powers pointed out that the Democratic party was going to make this a clear election issue. The a Democratic e-mail emerged showing that a petition against the bill had already received over 3500 signatures. It is clear that the GOP is running scared from the issue.
