I have an essay for Romeo and Juliet, asking if Friar Laurence should be punished for his involvement in the marriage. I said that he shouldn't be punsihed because he was trying to end the feud and that Romeo and Juliet would have still be together even if their parents didn't know. I need one more reason. Any ideas?

    As a cleric, maybe he is immune from punishment regarding his religious acts?
