Does the church “own” marriage?

Today’s Link

Here is an interesting perspective.  The link today is to an article about who owns the institution of marriage in England.  This is especially relevent in the light of all of these discrimination “get-out” clauses that folks want to have to allow them to continue to discriminate legally.  While not a fan of the Daily telegraph in England it is an interesting article for them to be running.

This is a far cry from the situation in the USA where although marriage is a civil act in law, the rhetoric is almost entirely owned by religious groups and churches, even though it should have nothing to do with them.

So what say you, good people?  Who owns marriage?

Big love,
