From BBC News:
Proposed changes to marriage would open the way for Star Wars Jedi to perform ceremonies, a church has said.
The Free Church of Scotland said the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill will allow groups promoting a belief to marry couples.
The government said the change was relevant to bodies such as humanists, who are classed as religious rather than non-religious at the moment.
A spokeswoman said the reputation of Scottish ceremonies would be protected.
The Free Church of Scotland has raised concerns about religious and civil partnership ceremonies being joined by a third category.Church spokesman, the Reverend Iver Martin, told BBC Alba: “The third category is quite astonishing because it is the so-called belief category without really defining what belief means.
“There are loads of people in a diverse society like this for whom belief can mean virtually anything – the Flat Earth Society and Jedi Knights Society – who knows?
Can anyone else see Yoda as a Vicar?
