Federal Appeals Court Decides In Favor Of “Secular Humanists”

The federal appeals court in Chicago has decided in favor of “secular humanists” who fought for the right to perform marriages in Indiana. It‘s the state‘s “other” marriage case, the one getting less public attention than the debate over marriage between those of the same sex. But the case is no less important to the Center for Inquiry, an organization based in Indianapolis, describing itself as “humanist.” CFI leaders say the ruling is a “big step forward” to allow nonreligious persons to have their marriages solemnized by a Secular Celebrant. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is still deabting weather or not, he'll  appeal the ruling.
