so you are discriminating against your own congregation.
The separation of church and state was not established to allow churches to break the law. It was done to protect the right to worship and prevent the government from taxing churches out of existence. It was also done to prevent the church from having influence over politicians which would lead to tyrannical legistlation like the Defense of Marriage Act.
I do agree that government should not be involved at all in marriage, but until that day nobody should be denied the right to marry by church or state.
