Daramola, in a statement on Tuesday, also applauded the Federal Government for resisting the pressure to reverse its earlier anti-same-sex policy and law. It is one decision too many.
In Israel, marriages can be performed only under the auspices of the religious community to which couples belong, and no inter-faith marriages performed in the country are legally recognized. In addition to the respective faiths of Jewish , Muslim , and Druze communities in Israel, Israel recognizes ten distinct denominations of Christianity. The Israeli Interior Ministry registers marriages on presentation of proper documentation. Israel's religious authorities — the only entities authorized to perform weddings in Israel — are prohibited from marrying couples unless both partners share the same religion. Therefore, interfaith couples can be legally married in Israel only if one of the partners converts to the religion of the other.
