 50 Clergy in Nebraska Pledge to Perform Same-Sex Marriages

In stark contravention of orthodox Christian principles, more than 50 members of the clergy in Nebraska have pledged to perform same-sex marriages in their churches if the state's ban on same-sex marriage is overturned.

A lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska on behalf of seven same-sex couples last year is challenging the state's voter approved ban on same-sex marriage. A ruling from U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon is now pending after hearing arguments on the ACLU's motion for an injunction to block enforcement of the ban while that lawsuit is pending, according to The Associated Press.

n a statement included with a petition from a group of Christian clergy called Heartland Clergy for Inclusion, however, more than 50 churches declared that they were ready to marry same-sex couples as soon as it's legal in the state.
