Neil Carrick: A Marriage of Church & State

With new developments, we revisit Neil Carrick’s ongoing legal battles with the state of Michigan over intrusive and archaic marriage laws.

Almost exactly one year ago, we had Neil Carrick on the show to talk about his challenges to the state of Michigan’s invasive marriage laws. He was in the middle of the lawsuit then, so we talked more about what exactly was wrong with their laws, and why he decided to take them on. Since then, his lawsuit has been thrown out, but he has been pursuing other measures to have the courts address the issue in the hopes of seeing the laws changed in such a way that the government steps out of the middle of marriages between individuals.

To get up to speed, we’ve linked the original episode below.
