Law to Ban Clergy From Marrying Update

Bob Emrich of the Maine Jeremiah Project reports, "...the Judiciary Committee today voted unanimously "ought not to pass" on LD 779 "An Act To Remove Clergy as Signatories on Marriage Licenses". In an unusual move, they shortened the public hearing and went immediately into work session in order to vote on the bill. This is a wonderful victory!

Thank you Lord!!!

Pastor Bill,

Was Bob Emrich's attendance at the State House hearing as leader of the Jeremiah group or as a private citizen?

I think that's an important distinction to make, especially considering his Jeremiah group's 501c3 tax-exempt IRS designation

Good point--you should pursue it with him. I have no idea.
