California Reality! Ding-Dong Go the Wedding Bells for LGBT Folks in California!


This just in: the state of California is the second state in the union, a.k.a., the United States of America, that allows us folk to be wedded and married! Bi-coastal reality: Massachusetts, now California!

Absolutely amazing!

"I now pronounce you husband and husband" or "wife and wife" or any derivation from there.

Wow!

Now, while most mainline Protestant churches were sure to put in their constitutions that "marriage is between one man and one woman," what do you do if more and more states offer something more or something other than that? After all, we who are LGBT, who are wedded together, are, in the eyes of the state, married and thus called to live (if your vows so state it) in fidelity? And all wedding and marriages are state mandated contracts that we Ministers of the Word and Sacrament are party to as we sign off on them!

Congrats Californians! I'm envious! Click here for more.

From the red state of North Carolina (regardless of our elected representatives who all supported DOMA in the state and federal level),

Peace!
