    His past statement as reported in article: "...I have never done a blessing for a same-sex couple. I've never been asked to do one. I'm not sure that I would...."

    Oh, so now he's gonna bless us is he?

    I'd probably respect the support more if I actually thought someone had dominion over God.

    That minor, somehow seemingly unattainable condition unmet, I also have a small problem with his rationale that he wants "a deeper commitment to marriage that is more and more inclusive". What's next, couch and puppy fuckers?

    From what I just read, his statement is not an endorsement for the equality of gay people. All he has done at least by what that article says is to use gay people to reinforce his idea of coupling.

    I see this as less an endorsement for equal rights than I do as a denouncement of single people, of people "living in sin" even if they are sin. Oh noooos.

    He's not God's emissary, he's an interior decorator. Oh look, I bet that gay person would look lovely on that couch. I think I'll marry them. Do you, Couch, take this gay person to be....
