Notable & Quotable

The Richmond Times-Dispatch today carries an article about how various Episcopal parishes and individuals are reacting to the drama in the Anglican Communion. In it is this most marvelous bit:

Howard Wells, a member of St. Philip's who is gay, said he would like to be able to have a ceremonial blessing in his church for himself and his partner.

"There is so much irony," he said. "The Episcopal Church will bless everything from a warship to my dead body at the end of my life. But they refuse to bless my relationship with my partner of 13 years."

Others have made similar statements. God bless Howard Wells for saying it again, and saying it powerfully. Someday ... someday ... the message will get through to those who still don't get it.
