I Do Gay Marriage

Nobody ever can or should be mandated to perform a religious act -- including officiating at a wedding. Want proof? Ask most Rabbis about doing an interfaith marriage. So, these conservatives who have planned to defy SCOTUS on DOMA are within their theological right (and rites) to refuse. However, there are thousands and thousands of clergy who feel that our religious rights (and rites) have been inhibited by DOMA and laws that limit the legal implications of the marriages we have performed between same sex couples. Today is a clear victory for religious freedom as it maintains the rights of clergy who say 'I Don't' to gay marriage, but liberates those of us who say 'I do.'
