Today, the Alliance for Baptists and the Central Conference for American Rabbis joined in on a lawsuit regarding religious freedom.

Kathy Smith and Lisa Cloninger joined this lawsuit after they learned their pastor, Nancy Allison, could be arrested for performing a religious ceremony.

It is a misdemeanor to perform a marriage ceremony on a couple who does not have a marriage license.

"I wouldn't want to put nancy in that position," said Smith.

"She shouldn't have to put her job at risk to do something that her denomination and her faith says is acceptable," said Clonginger.

Their Charlotte church, United Church of Christ has supported same sex marriage since 2000.

"If I want to model my ministry after the life of Christ than one of the things I want to be is welcoming to all," said Allison.
