Episcopal Bishops Endorse Marriage and Oppose Prop 8

Timothy Kincaid

September 10th, 2008

As expected, the top six Episcopal Bishops in California announced their opposition to Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage amendment.

The bishops argued that preserving the right of gays and lesbians to marry would enhance the “Christian values” of monogamy, love and commitment.

“We believe that continued access to civil marriage for all, regardless of sexual orientation, is consistent with the best principles of our constitutional rights,” said the Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles.

This is good news. Fortunately, in Arizona, Bishop Smith of the Episcopal Church has openly opposed our own Proposition 102. Unfortunately, on the other hand, the two prominent Arizona Bishops on the Roman Catholic side of arena have issued very public statements in support of 102. That’s probably no surprise to anyone familiar with the dogma of the RC Church, but it should be enough to scare us into fighting even harder to defeat this hideous piece of proposed legislation, simply because the Roman Catholics outnumber Episcopalians by roughly 10%.
