Not everyone has "the right to a religious ceremony" (i.e. e.g. marriage). If a person is previously married he or she does not have the right to a religious ceremony, because of the pre-existing marriage. This is the case for most religious groups, unless you are talking about some CLDS sect in Utah, or some islamic sect that practice polygamy.

In New Zealand there is currently legislation to make gay marriage legal and I hope it passes.

The same as heterosexual marriages. I don't really see how the two would differ in their overall outcome.

I think you're confusing government recognition of said marriage with the ability to have a ceremony. The government "prevents" polygamy by refusing to recognize that a single individual is involved in multiple marriages; they have no ability to restrict people from conducting a religious ceremony.

Or am I missing something?
