A response


Some of my dear Episcopalian friends are just kiddy over their general assembly er convention approving marriage equality for everyone BUT what they fail to remember let alone broadcast, and this is so typical, there is a provision that allows bishops and clergy in general to refuse to officiate at weddings of same gender couples! A wonderfully worded statement relishes the unity that is maintained by this compromise and provision and some even have gone so far as to say it is a model for all the Anglican churches “struggling” with the issue. It is really no different that the wonderfully worded compromise at the time of the Civil War that allowed Episcopalians to pray for both the Confederate President and the Union President as presidents of equal legitimacy and position and further allowed for the sake of “unity in the Body of Christ” for slave owners and abolitionists to be in loving disagreement in the same church!
