Elvis-Themed Vegas Chapel Refuses to Sanctify Same-Sex Weddings Despite Court OK
Same-sex couples wishing to have a have a memorable Elvis-themed wedding in Las Vegas will be disappointed if they show up on the rice-strewn steps of the Elvis Wedding Chapel on Las Vegas Blvd.
According to 8 News Now, the owner of one chapel is refusing to sanctify the marriage of gay couples, citing her Christian faith.
The Elvis Wedding Chapel, which offers a variety of Elvis-themed wedding packages including the “Blue Hawaii,” the “Rockabilly,” and “Elvis in Concert” is refusing to conduct same-sex weddings despite a Federal Court ruling in early October allowing the ceremonies to commence….
Vegas Wed Chapel owner Dolly Deleon, saying she’s a born-again believer in Jesus, stated she wouldn’t permit a same sex marriage in her chapel due to her faith.
“My faith won’t allow me,” Deleon said.
Because, really, what is more sacred than being married by some actor in an Elvis costume.
