Thanks Joan and Cat. Yes, the Episcopalians also had the good sense to dump the Pope!
Congratulations to you and your husband, Bertold!
(And if you do go to confession, you can tell the priest they'll have to adapt to reality. :-) I know a gay man who "fired" the Catholic Church for considering him "intrinsically disordered"; he's still a theist, but happily Episcopalian -- as Robin Williams put it, "all of the pageantry, none of the guilt.")
Bertold, Congratulations! You are part of the new changes and a tribute to you both. My best wishes for a healthy, strong, happy 35 more years.
Thanks so much for all the good wishes guys! It's a bit of an anti-climax at this point. Deciding if I should wear shorts or jeans. I'll have to go to confession first, of course.
That's wonderful, Bertold! Congratulations on a truly momentous event.
Bertold, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Wish you all the best.
After 35 amazing years together we're tying the knot legally (even though we tied it for ourselves way back when). Went out and got the marriage license last week.
Yes, Loren, you are correct. It's a slow, baby steps process to enlightenment.
Perhaps we will be lucky to soon see a surge in atheism take place in the same rapid manner in which marriage equality advanced. We can only hope.
I have a feeling in my gut that religion is on the verge of receiving a serious backlash from sane-thinking people, both non-religious AND the moderately religious. Rational people are fed up with extremist ideologies both abroad and here in the US. Rational people don't take kindly to churches denying access to birth control via health care plans or wanting special rights to discriminate against whomever they choose. It's not only uncivil, but it's undemocratic.
With every "deeply held religious belief" and "religious freedom" legislation being trumpeted as the cause du jour, the fundamentally religious keep digging themselves into a bigger hole.
