It includes the line "I, [Plaintiff], state under penalty of perjury that the parties' marriage was solemnized by a minister, clergyman or leader of the Society for Ethical Culture..."
Seems I've turned into one of those nitpickers...but stuff like this bothers me because it's evidence that the default, unthinking, automatic assumption is that clergy are men. Which annoys me.
Now I suppose I will have to find out how to go about requesting they change it. Ho hum. Anyone have lots of free time and want to do it for me?
