From my 12th floor office window I can see the top of Philadelphia's city hall, upon which rests a statue of William Penn (see picture on left for approximated view). Penn, a Quaker (though he was born Anglican), founded the province of Pennsylvania (Penn's Woods) in 1681 to exist as a place of complete religious freedom for anyone who believed in God (which one could argue is not quite "complete" religious freedom, but let's just all be friends). In many areas, Pennsylvania remains true to it's Quaker roots to this day.
On August 11th, friends of ours are getting married in the state of Pennsylvania. My wife is a bridesmaid (she's calling herself the "matron of honor" as she's the only bridesmaid with a child and there is no official maid of honor or best man) and over this past weekend, they honored me by asking me to perform the wedding ceremony (which I think actually makes me the best of all the men, no matter what the groom or groomsmen say). The ceremony will be my first and to be honest I'm so happy and excited that I get to marry them (that is, perform the wedding because I'm already married and if I were to "marry them" not only would it be weird, but figuring out our income taxes would just be a mess).
Now technically, I'm licensed to perform weddings in the states of New Jersey and Indiana (not Pennsylvania) and so I asked them about this, figuring we could come up with a solution between now and August if necessary. And much to my surprise, William Penn has already taken care of this. Because of it's Quaker origins, Pennsylvania allows for anyone to perform a wedding ceremony (Quakers don't have clergy) with the appropriate marriage licences. I qualify as anyone and am the anyone whom they have chosen.
"Thanks William Penn." (I actually just said that out loud while looking upon ol' Billy).
