NorCal Bishops say "No on 8"

Some pictures from the press conference at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco this afternoon at which Episcopal bishops released their statement of opposition to the ballot proposition that would outlaw same-sex civil marriage. For pictures of the Southern California press conference, see the Rev. Susan Russell's blog. Full statement here.

The Rt. Rev. Barry Beisner of the Diocese of Northern California spoke in front of supportive Episcopalians.

The Rt. Rev. Steven Charleston, assistant bishop of California, added that he knew about discrimination since he is a registered member of the Choctaw Native American people. He insisted that it is time for LGBT people to enjoy the same civil rights as anyone else.
