And another one!

A London church joins the marriage boycott:
Weddings have been suspended at a 300-year-old church in north London in protest at "unjust" religious marriage rights of same-sex couples.

Newington Green Unitarian Church will only conduct a ceremonial blessing for both heterosexual and gay couples who have legally wed in a civil ceremony.

The church's minister, Andrew Pakula, said the church's committee voted unanimously in favour of the decision.

The church in Islington suspended full wedding ceremonies from 30 March.

The church describes itself as "an inclusive, liberal religious community welcoming people from all traditions and perspectives".

It said it would continue to bar full weddings until the law was amended.
