Still striving to catch up from my travels, so hang in there with me as I glance back into the week. Here is a nice look at a highly symbolic action by a church on the religious left. This Washington Post report contains all of the sources that you expect in another one of the oldline denominations that, sadly, will almost certainly spin apart over the issue of sexuality and marriage. In this case, a pastor has actually banned marriages in his church -- as a protest that he cannot legally marry gays, lesbians, bisexuals and the transgendered. Thus, the nice main headline: "Wedded Bliss for All or None."
That raises a question: What would a bisexual wedding be like?
However, the lead on this piece by Annie Gowen is laugh-out-loud funny.
Clarendon Presbyterian Church Pastor David Ensign has an alternative air about him. He wears an earring and has been known to pick up his guitar to play a few hymns during Sunday services.
Hey reporter, that image is so, so 1960s.
Meanwhile, there are conservative pastors out there in megachurch land with their own rock bands and music videos -- in the Sunday services. We're talking earrings, piercings, tattoos, the whole package. I imagine that some are in churches that are semi-Presbyterian, but, yes, not in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
