Humanist couple marries in Britain :: WaPo

Humanists believe in leading moral lives by using reason instead of religious doctrine or god worship, said Ivan Middleton, the celebrant who married (sic) the couple. Middleton said humanists had campaigned for 15 years to make their organization's wedding ceremonies legal so couples would not need additional, civil recognition. "We've been doing humanist weddings which were not legal," Middleton said. "We've been saying this is a form of discrimination."
Not to distract from the central point, the celebrant performed the ceremony. He did not marry the couple. Unless there's something about humanism that I don't know about.
