(Christian Post) A nationwide atheist organization has sued the Indiana state government over its marriage statute, which they say forbids them from overseeing marriages.

Arguments were heard in U.S. District Court on Monday for the suit filed by the Center for Inquiry against Indiana’s marriage statute, which the secular group alleges is unconstitutional.

Paul Fidalgo, communications director for the Center for Inquiry, told The Christian Post that nonreligious people should be allowed to choose a nonreligious celebrant solemnizing their marriage.
