‘The time has certainly come’ – Bp. Hanley on marriage for all

‘The time has certainly come’ – Bp. Hanley on marriage for all

Oregon’s bishop, The Rt. Rev. Michael Hanley, on the right to marry the one you love:

Years ago the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Edmond Browning said, ‘there will be no outcasts.’ I strongly believe in the inclusion of all persons in the life of the Church. Our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters in Christ deserve all the rights and privileges, including the right to marry and raise a family, which my wife and I have appreciated in our 30+ years of marriage and in the raising of our two daughters. The time has certainly come to offer the gift of marriage and family to all who seek this honorable estate.

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.
