A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Gays and the Church

Clergy in Arizona are praying against a gay marriage ban. Services were held throughout Washington in support of recently passed legislation which bans discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Iliff Seminary, a United Methodist school, came out against the Judicial Council ruling which let stand a minister's ability to deny membership to someone who is gay or lesbian. And the head of the South African Anglicans comes out in support of Gene Robinson.

While clergy and churches have often taken such stands we find Howard Dean, in the name of reaching out to the church, bashing gay marriage on the 700 Club. It won't impress the religious right and at the same time it leaves those of us in the church working for equality confused if not demoralized.
