A Unitarian minister has been arrested for refusing to marry a same sex couple, in Alabama. No, wait, that’s not right: for wanting to marry a same sex couple. From Think Progress:
“In February, the Rev. Anne Susan DiPrizio, a Unitarian minister offered to marry a lesbian couple at the Autauga County Probate Office after a state probate judge refused to do so. Though the couple had received a marriage license, Probate Judge Al Booth halted compliance with the federal court’s marriage equality order the day before. According to the Montgomery Advertiser, sheriff’s deputies were called and DiPrizio was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after she refused to leave…”
A federal court order overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, but the state has been refusing to comply.
Still waiting for the outrage over the infringement on Rev. DiPrizio’s religious freedom.
