Revisiting a history lesson

I just got a news article forwarded to me by a colleague ... some startling statistics about same-sex marriage coming on the heals of Argentina's vote to legalize marriage equality. It's called Gay Marriage Chart-of-the-Day and it illustrates that there are now about 250 million people worldwide living in jurisdictions which provide for marriage equity.

Let's say that again. 250 million people. Wow!

We're not "there" yet, but we're certainly getting there. And all that reminded me of this piece we did last year -- just before General Convention 2009 -- with some fun-facts-to-know-and-tell that I thought were worth re-telling ... especially on a day when not only marriage equality is back in the news but so is women's ordination (with all the foolishness going on across the pond in the CofE.) Anyway ... here you go -- 3 minutes and 20 seconds of Episcopal Church history for a summer afternoon:
