CA Episcopal Leaders Come Out For Gay Nups


Many religious activists eschew reason and go straight for their traditional. You know, when people argue that gay marriage somehow weakens the institution of marriage, which makes absolutely no sense to us.

Well, some of California’s pro-gay Episcopal preachers are bucking the trend and bringing some logic to their argument:

California’s six most senior Episcopal bishops Wednesday unanimously declared their opposition to a constitutional amendment on the statewide November ballot that would ban same-sex marriage.

The bishops argued that preserving the right of gays and lesbians to marry would enhance the “Christian values” of monogamy, love and commitment.

Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, flanked at a news conference by fellow clergy members and gay and straight couples, added: “We do not believe that marriage of heterosexuals is threatened by same-sex marriage.”

Now, Bruno, go forth and spread your word…

      It’s time that we realize the Christianity and homosexuality aren’t as incompatible as the orthodoxy would have us think. These Episcopal preachers are taking the kind of risk and the kind of stand that Christianity is all about.

      They aren’t “preachers” they are priests.
      And it isn’t “Rt. Rev. John Bruno” its The Right Rev. John Bruno.
