    Fine for you to say, it sucks for the tens of thousands of faithful Episcopalians who have supported the Church all of their lives. The Episcopal Church's silliness has already driven whole diocese away with it's silliness "Remember all that stuff we told you before? Well, forget that." I hope the faithful continue to leave in droves and take their money with them.
    There are plenty of "faithful Episcopals", including my family, who are fine with the Church's decision. Anybody who insists on holding onto archaic ideas of sexuality should leave the church as far as I'm concerned as they would poison the message of the Church with their prejudice and bitterness.

    Mob rule shouldn't be used as a justification to deny someone equal legal recognition.

    Glad you cleared that up.

    People like you are the reason why it took so long for Jim Crow laws to be abolished.
    Caine is a good name for someone with such hate in their heart. Killed any relatives lately?

    I am shocked by your hateful intolerance. Wow. Anybody who holds to what has been taught for hundreds of years in the Episcopal Church should just get out because they will poison the new message? Talk about prejudice and bitterness.

    Everyone’s welcome at the table of grace.

    The Biblical figure is "Cain".

    I guess you forgot the people that Jesus kicked out the Temple. Figures.
