Denmark to Approve Gay Weddings in Church, Claims Ministers Have Right to Refuse


The Associated Press:

Denmark's government wants to allow same-sex couples to get married in formal church weddings, instead of the short blessing ceremonies that the state Lutheran Church currently offers.

The government said Wednesday it's preparing to launch a proposal in February to change Denmark's marriage laws.

.. Danish clergy would retain the right to refuse to wed gay couples without sanctions.

Just like Dutch registrars have the right to refuse? Oh wait, they don't anymore.
