Bishop of Minnesota Speaks Out for Marriage Equality

From its very origins, the Episcopal Church in Minnesota has always stood with the marginalized. Race, ethnicity, gender, gender orientation or immigrant we have embraced both the Gospel mandate of love of neighbor and the Baptismal Covenant imperative to respect the dignity of every human being. Any actions, whether sacred or secular — such as the proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit our LGBT brothers and sisters from the rights and privileges that the rest of Minnesotans enjoy - are considered to be marginalizing and contrary to the Gospel, the Baptismal Covenant and our history.
The Rt. Rev. Brian N. Prior
IX Bishop, Episcopal Church of Minnesota

Please go talk to the Bishops of the Catholic church who are fueling the fires behind this anti-GLBT marriage amendment. Congratulations on taking a public stand re this issue. We are all God's children, period. The gospels tell us to love one another. It doesn't say to love one another except if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. Human dignity should be attributed to all. Thank you for speaking out.
