If not for Cedar Point, you could blast Ohio to the darkest part of the universe and nobody would miss it.

simrobert2001: Infinite Monkeys In Front Of A Computer: Let me see if I have this right.  Cedar Point doesn't want to ruin the sanctity of traditional marriage so they won' allow gays to participate in their weddings....that take place in an amusement park....officiated by zombies. It certainly sounds like it would cheapen the experience for the non-gays.

NO.  They won't do it because they provide marriage certificates.  The STATE OF OHIO will not provide one to a gay couple, so ceadar point can't provide it by proxy.  They simply don't want to pay for those to to stay at a hotel, and stay in the park if the STATE OF OHIO will not allow them to get married.

No, and you didn't read the article apparently. They also allow already married couples to participate as a sort of "commitment ceremony" thing. The gay couple asked to participate as such, which violates nothing whatsoever. Cedar Point pussed out and cancelled the whole event rather than risk making bigots upset at seeing someone happy in a way that doesn't conform to their religious beliefs at the event.

Cedar Point was hoping to drum up interest in the park's spooky fall festival, HalloWeekends.

Yeah...because nobody's ever heard of it and there aren't longer lines than normal.

What the hell.  Why not just lie and say, "Oh sorry!  We had a ton of interest and already have our 13 couples!  Maybe next year!"

Not saying that's the right thing to do, just that it would have saved a lot of press....

I'm a former Columbus resident who went to a Unitarian Universalist Church there from time to time.  They would be quite shocked to learn that all of the same-sex marriages that they officiated over were against the law.

Good: Marriage is between a man and a woman, or two men or two women, who are alive. period.

"We cannot legally have weddings here unless they are male/female couples," he wrote. "It's currently the law in Ohio, and we aren't going to deviate from that. It's their law, not ours. If it were legal in Ohio, of course we'd allow same-sex submissions. Nobody here is trying to discriminate against anyone or any guest. This is an issue that needs to be taken up with government, not Cedar Point."

You can have a wedding to gay marry your dead cat and it is perfectly legal. What you and your cat can't do is get a marriage certificate. The wedding has dick all to do with anything.
