Bishop of Rochester speaks out for marriage equality

In the news in New York state:

My faith teaches me that all people are children of God, deserving of love, dignity and equal treatment.

When same-sex couples are treated as less than anyone else, it is my problem; my spiritual problem.

I would personally be delighted for New York to allow loving, committed same-sex couples to be married.

The Rt. Rev. Prince Singh is VIII Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Rochester.

Good on him! We don't get that kind of talk over here, slightly to the east, or should I say right of Rochester, in Albany.

Full disclosure states that I am not in TEC in any event, but I am in Albany!

"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look, like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exhanged the Truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator -- who is forever praised, Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts, Even their women exhchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and recieved in themsleves the due penalty for their perversion. " Said, GOD.
