A Rainbow of Conscientious Objection

Conscientious objection is not limited to war, but all violence, defined as force to effect an injury.  Forcing people to recognize same-sex marriages is a violence, one to which there is objection.
The government will propose new protections for “conscientious objectors” to same-sex marriage which marriage equality advocates fear could allow civil celebrants, registrars and even bakers and florists to refuse to serve same-sex weddings.
There are those who conscientiously object to gay marriage.  They ought to live out their conscience.

  1. Certainly makes sense, but I'm not sure using a term so heavily and historically associated with anti-violence/war is a good idea.
