Thank you for the clarification, Ann Fontaine. I found the use of the scare-quotes rather a surprise on this site.

David Allen

The article likely says “bless” because same sex marriage is not legal in TX.

Dear Warren: if you click on more info on the video you will see the sentence is copied from the TV station’s note.

What’s with the inverted commas around “bless” in the original post?


God is Good, huh Bill? The Holy Spirit, She moves—leads us to higher ground! 🙂

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.
