Green Street UMCI used to make the joke that I would not get married, at least, until gay marriage was legal; the rationale was that I refused to take part in a discriminatory ritual. This was, ultimately, a joke, of course, with the obvious retort being to wonder who would ever marry me.

Setting that aside, though, let us check in with Meredith Bennett-Smith of Huffington Post, who offers us this lede:

A United Methodist church in Winston-Salem, N.C., has vowed to stop performing weddings until same-sex marriage is made legal.

Yes, you read that correctly.
