Sigh, I miss the days of happy ritual cannabilism. Eating the flesh and blood of our God like He intended. The mandatory fish on Fridays I don't miss.
So you're a member of that community and can be confident you speak for the entire group? That might be more than a tad over-reaching. Internal religious activities are rather effectively walled off from outsiders. Now members arguing from within their respective institutions are free to make the argument, women have argued for decades to be allowed into the Catholic Priesthood, but no lawsuits that I can recall with good reason: The First Amendment... plus RFRA. Oh and in...
Inevitable, though too long in coming: "AMENDMENT XIV Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

That's just how powerful the Bible is. Personally I like to use it as a talking point against cotton-polyester blends.....
14th Amendment; EQUAL protection under the law. States no doubt have the right to ignore ALL marriage. They can just delete all legal connection to that. 
Not a blip on her balance sheet, which makes her case being about the indies and people starting out more persuasive as it won't mean anything for her economically. 
Business: she asked something of Apple, they asked something of her in return.
She's a Yankee so that would probably be: "No".
