Temple marriage ceremony

Katrina Anderson was really thrilled when her best buddy from the Brigham Young University wanted her to be bridesmaid. After that she purchased a green colored top and multicolored skirt selected by the bride herself. She also got a airplane ticket to Ohio. Later she took her to her place. All these did not appear strange at all.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints has got a whole lot of attention in the past few years for their opposition to same sex marriage. Still the church has a less publicized divisive wedding policy – anticipating its members in the United States and some other countries to get married in wedding ceremonies which exclude all who is not an active Mormon adult — and punishing pairs who have different civil wedding ceremonies by making the couple wait almost a year for a temple wedding. While the temple marriage is an important Mormon custom, excluding friends and family members from the big celebration does not need to be.

A temple marriage is an ordinance started by Joseph Smith in the church’s early days. As per Joseph Smith, whatever is sealed or bound in a special event like this on Earth will be sealed or bound in heaven. Today, the point of a temple marriage is to establish a concordat for a wedding which survives death. It I thought absolutely important to salvation.

Washinton florist files a countersuit

The Washington lady who earlier sued by the attorney general of the state after she refused to create floral arrangements for a gay wedding ceremony has now registered a counter suit which argues that her decision is constitutionally protected.

The attorneys of Alliance Defending Freedom filed the countersuit in Benton County Superior Court on Thursday on behalf of Barronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers in Richland in Washington. Her attorneys told that the state cannot force her to decorate for the gay weddings as is she does that, she would have to go against all her religious beliefs.

In a statement, Dale Schowengerdt, an ADF Senior Legal Counsel told that everyone knows that plenty of florists are ready to assist in gay wedding ceremonies, so the state has no reason to force Barronelle Stutzman to violate her religious beliefs. In  the United states, the government is supposed to protect freedom, not use its intolerance for some viewpoints to intimidate citizens into act something that is contrary to their faith convictions. As per constitution, family business owners are guaranteed the freedom to work and live as per their beliefs. It is this freedom that gives United States its cherished diversity as well as protects citizens from state mandated conformity.

ADF attorneys told that forcing the flower shop owner to go against her beliefs and it would also violate both the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and the Washington State Constitution, that protects “freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment” and also says “no one shall be molested or disturbed in person or property on account of religion.”
