City Now Says Ministers’ For-Profit Wedding Chapel Need Not Perform Same-Sex Marriages

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

An excerpt of the Religion Clause post is as follows:

“In Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, the Hitching Post, a for-profit wedding chapel across the street from the county clerk’s office now seems in the clear to refuse to perform same-sex marriages.  Earlier this month, the ministers filed suit against the city which had threatened to enforce its non-discrimination ordinance against the chapel. (See prior posting.) However now, as reported Friday by Boise State Public Radio, the city attorney says that the chapel is exempt, even though it is a for-profit entity.   Last month it reorganized as a limited liability company and provided in its operating agreement: ‘The Hitching Post is a religious corporation owned solely by ordained ministers of the Christian religion who operate this entity as an extension of their sincerely held religious beliefs and in accordance with their vows taken as Christian ministers.’
