The historical institution and legal contract solemnizing the relationship of one man and one woman shall be the only legally recognized marital contract in this state.
and to add interstate insult to injury:
If another state or foreign jurisdiction issues a license for persons to marry and if such marriage is prohibited in this state by the provisions of this section, then the marriage shall be void and unenforceable in this state.

This church, by the way, used the very same marquee in the runup to the Iraq invasion to promote a three-part sermon series entitled, "Islam: An Evil Religion."
While you're mad, here's a map showing where the church is, and perhaps a link to their web site and phone number. Might want to call and ask WTF? they're thinking.
So, tell me, attorneys and Establishment Clause mavens, does this constitute a threat to the church's tax exemption?
