WASHINGTON – The Human Rights Campaign today applauded the Washington National Cathedral’s announcement that it will begin celebrating weddings of gay and lesbian couples.
The Cathedral is the most visible faith community within the Episcopal Church.
“Today marks another milestone in the Episcopal Church’s embrace of all God’s children, including LGBT people,” said Rev. MacArthur Flournoy, deputy director of HRC’s Religion and Faith Program. “Today, the Church sent a simple but powerful message to LGBT Episcopalians – you are loved just the way you are, and for that we embrace you.”
