Bishop Curry interviews NC pastor who filed federal suit

Bishop Curry interviews NC pastor who filed federal suit

The Right Reverend Michael Curry, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, interviews the Reverend Nancy Petty, pastor of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, about the suit she and other religious and denominational leaders filed in federal court against North Carolina’s Amendment One, the law that prohibits all domestic legal unions except opposite-sex marriage.


Their suit is unique because it is the first to argue Amendment One infringes on religious freedom.

This is a very good interview by Bishop Curry. But, I could not help but wonder why the Dioceses of North Carolina (North Carolina, Western North Carolina and East Carolina), Episcopal clergy of the Dioceses of North Carolina (including the Bishops) apparently did not not join the lawsuit. Clearly The Episcopal Church agrees with the suit's intent.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
