HRC Religion & Faith News: Apr. 3, 2007
Religion and Faith Program Director Harry Knox and the Rev. Susan Russell, a member of HRC’s Religion Council, applauded the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church USA, who resoundingly rejected the anti-gay demands of international Anglican leaders. Said Knox, "The bishops calmly and prayerfully reiterated their firmly held beliefs in principles that have developed over time." Read Knox’s full comments on The Huffington Post. Also read Russell’s blog for The Washington Post and Newsweek’s On Faith. Russell argues that the Bishops’ decision moved the Episcopal Church one step further "Out of the Closet."
