MICHIGAN: Episcopal Bishop Backs Gay Marriage, Denounces “Irrational Fears”

“Picking and choosing whose rights should be protected or which civil rights the church will support is neither American ‘justice for all’ nor supported by the God of salvation history. I stand in support of marriage equality and pray that our justice system will work to break down the walls of segregation, promote the humanity of all and calm our irrational fears.” – Bishop Wendell Gibbs, of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. The ruling in Michigan’s marriage equality trial could come as soon as today. (Tipped by JMG reader Mark)
