Associated Press ^ | Jan. 9, 2013 | Brett Zongker

Cathedral officials tell The Associated Press the church will be among the first Episcopal congregations to implement a new rite of marriage for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members. The church will announce its new policy Wednesday.

As the nation's most prominent church, the decision carries huge symbolism. The 106-year-old cathedral has long been a spiritual center for the nation, hosting presidential inaugural services and funerals for Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford......

Very sad that the people in our nation and in our churches are blinded to the truth. As the Prophet Isaiah said, "Woe unto them who call evil good and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20)

This is something I am going to be drilling in the coming weeks/months/years.

If the Govn’t can force an entity to pay for something that goes against their religious beliefs, what happens when they start forcing churches to perform same sex marriages as well?

We are watching our society crumble right in front of our eyes.

May the Lord’s justice prevail against these people.

“...holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!”

II Timothy 3:5

The National Cathedral might as well start up with the animal sacrifices and chants to Lucifer as well.

DC is truly becoming a hub of abject evil in so many ways.

We are to believe that spiritual center of the nation among other things now consist of homosexual unions.

The world of a Leftist.

>As the nation’s most prominent church

I find these wingnuts no more prominent than a turd clinging to a sewer pipe. They may hold sway with fecal stained peckerheads, but any normal human will not be moved by their idiocy.

When do the cross-species “marriages” start being performed there? Aren’t we “progressive” now?

It is the nature and tactic of the liberal left to
get any opposition to their policies to betray
their principles even if just a little, which tarnishes
and subverts the rest of their position.

It’s what they did with the elder Bush on Taxes and it
continues today with everything conservatives hold
dear. They have taken over our schools, our
communities, and they continue to undermine
our governments compact with us.

Damn them to HELL.

The Episcopal “church” is a cult. if there are any Christian believers still Episcopal, then they need to denounce this and excommunicate any that adhere to this.

Homosexual activists infiltrated the Episcopal Church years ago to push this agenda.

Susan Russell, Louie Crew, Jan Nunley, Gene Robinson, and all the rest have been working tirelessly for this. Families have fled and the whole place is on life support.

Ok! They didn’t approve gay marriage in the National Cathedral!!!!!! It’s all a rouse. Protestants are strictly observing God’s laws.

Does that make you happy now?

Change the bible? Gods word endures forever. We do not add or change it. That would go against Gods word.

>>DC is truly becoming a hub of abject evil in so many ways.<<

Our nation was founded by folks with a devine inspiration and guidance from Almighty God.

He won’t be mocked. This is spitting in HIS face.

The Episcopal church will not marry a man and woman if they’ve been divorced...I think less than 3 years.

They will ordain an openly homosexual man,living with his gay lover after he left his wife and kids for the homosexual relationship.

as I have been told by one who should know - very, very few Episcopal Churches in the nation have embraced this provisional authority to do gay marriages. The few that do are in urban areas and have been infested by gays over the past 20-30 years. (like termites gnawing away at the foundation - ditto for colleges, universities and govenment)
