Overtaken by the forces of History? Episcopalians and Gay Marriage in Wisconsin

This morning, after I wrote an update for Grace Church on our conversations about same-sex blessings, I learned that the ACLU filed suit this morning in Federal District Court to have Wisconsin’s constitutional ban on gay marriage overturned. This comes as Virginia’s Attorney General has refused to defend that state’s ban, and courts ruling in Oklahoma and elsewhere that such state bans are unconstitutional.

This is a very interesting development both for the state and for the Episcopal Church in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, our work on same-sex blessings continues at Grace. Our draft public state of inclusion is available here:LGBTstatement_revised_01292014
