Narrow religious exemption in Delaware law redefining marriage

    Religion Clause: The new law protects clergy who object to performing same-sex marriages. It provides: nothing in this section shall be construed to require any person (including any clergyperson or minister of any religion) authorized to solemnize a marriage to solemnize any marriage, and no such authorized person who fails or refuses for any reason to solemnize a marriage shall be subject to any fine or other penalty for such failure or refusal. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, a clerk of the peace who issues a marriage license, or a deputy thereof, shall be required to perform a solemnization of such marriage if requested by the applicants for such license.

What ‘yes’ vote to redefine marriage really means | Nicole Theis of DE Family Policy Council

    Nicole Theis of DE Family Policy Council at Delaware Online: Marriage is based on the truth that men and women are complementary, the fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need a mother and a father. Redefining marriage rejects these truths. This is the position many of us hold, including the Delaware Family Policy Council. But this week, an advocate for same-sex marriage accused us of being a “hate” group and called for an investigation simply for believing in the definition of marriage that predates government and is true across cultures, faiths and time.

Delaware: Residents turn out to support Sussex council prayer

    Cape Gazette: Councilman Vance Phillips, R-Laurel, who has been among the staunchest supporters of opening meetings with The Lord’s Prayer, told Betts council members have been placed in a precarious position. He said if council fails to abide by the court injunction and recites The Lord’s Prayer anyway, council members could be arrested or the county could be fined. “People tell me we should be willing to go to jail for this,” he said. “But what if the fine is $10,000 a day? What would you have us do?” he asked. He didn’t get an answer. The county’s lead attorney, Everett Moore, cut in before Betts could respond, reminding Phillips that the issue was not an agenda item and could not be discussed.
