Gay Wedding

A couple of guys from my church who have been together for nine years were married recently. They live in Iowa where gay weddings are legal.

They wanted to use the chapel at our university for the service and asked for it as a "worship" service. This was during the commencement preparations and no one checked it out.

It so happens, at this time, no minister from our church is authorized to marry gay couples...regardless of the law in the state. Well the president of the university is in deep doo doo for allowing the service in the chapel on the campus.

I had an e-mail from him yesterday and he seems to think the issue will be addressed at the 2010 World Conference of the church. I don't think so because there is no discussion of the issue currently in the Saints Herald, (the official church magazine) before the membership like there is "conditions for membership".

It will be interesting...that's for sure.

Yes, I'm sure it will be very interesting! Don't guess I'll ever understand prejudice -- of any kind.
