The Episcopal Church will now allow priests to conduct services blessing same-sex relationships. The denomination’s House of Bishops approved the policy Monday, and delegates to the national convention approved the measure on Tuesday becoming the largest U.S. religious denomination to approve such a ritual.
What’s your response?
Is this an appropriate theological response? Is this a good compromise?”
One’s interpretation of scripture is the crux of the matter. If you can reconcile homosexuality with your biblical understanding of God’s design for human sexuality, you can support the church’s blessing a same-sex relationship. If you cannot (I cannot), you cannot vote for such a validation no matter the mutual commitment.
