I know that the most compelling argument for same-sex marriage focuses on the civil contract recognized by the government, but this story really moved me.
Here’s a quote from the Rev. Canon J. Edwin Bacon Jr. of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena:
“I am honored to serve a church where the leadership demonstrates such stirring courage to move beyond lip service about embodying God’s inclusive love to actually committing our faith community to the practice of marriage equality.”
And I am honored to be a member of it.
