Further Response to Rob

I, of course, agree with Rob regarding the executioner, but not with the Massachusetts justice of the peace. The justice of the peace can perform most marriages and sufficient alternatives exist for the remaining marriages.  It is distinguishable from the executioner.  I do not think the conscientious JP should be paid for work not performed and I think that the result should probably be different if the JP could as a matter of conscience perform only a minority of marriages.
