Michael Curry was recently interviewed by PBS, says the work of the church is to “find ways to be a bridge community that brings differing people together under the rubric of love.”
Curry also advocates for a church with a plurality of views, noting that he supports equality for people who identify as LGBT, but will never require clergy to perform marriages that they object to. Curry was an opponent of the North Carolina ban on marriage for same-sex couples, but says that he remained in connection with clergy who supported the ban.
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.
