Why marriage equality in the church?

Why should General Convention 2009 seek marriage equality for same sex couples? Integrity USA responds with this video.

While the current President and the Episcopal Church drag their feet on this issue, former Vice President, Dick Cheney, who occasionally attends St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson, WY, near his home there, says he favors state by state approval of marriage equality.

Former vice president Richard Cheney waded into another simmering public debate today, suggesting he supports legalizing gay marriage as long as the issue is decided by the states rather than the federal government.

Cheney, whose youngest daughter is a lesbian with a longtime partner, said during an appearance at the National Press Club that “people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish, any kind of arrangement they wish.”

Interesting that Archbishop Rowan Williams now expects the Episcopal Church to occupy a position to the right of Dick Cheney in order to keep the communion together.
