Graphic of the week

Graphic of the week

The Public Religion Research Institute publishes a graphic of the week. This week they are tracking the percentage of residents of each state in favor of legal marriage for same gender couples. It’s interesting to track which states are lagging behind as the rest of the nation moves into the future of same gender marriage as the norm.

I wonder how this tracks with the dioceses that do not permit same sex marriages.

Paul Powers

Not all that closely, as far as I can tell. Albany, Springfield, Florida and Central Florida, which prohibit same-sex marriages are in states where the majority of people are in favor of same-sex marriage. Western Louisiana is going to permit them when the new canon goes into effect, but the majority of Louisianans oppose them.

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.
