First Ones Over the Cliff

Ooh, I’ll bet the Episcopal Church leaders are sooo jealous:

The United Church of Christ, the first mainline Protestant denomination to ordain an openly homosexual minister 35 years ago, became the first to endorse same-sex marriage within its pews Monday.

Roughly 80 percent of the liberal denomination???s 884-member General Synod voted to approve the resolution, which calls on member churches to consider wedding policies ???that do not discriminate against couples based on gender.???
[…]
According to a UCC press release, the denomination???s president, Rev. John H. Thomas, said his church ???acted courageously to declare freedom.???

Freedom? Puh-leeez.

“Haven’t you read,” [Jesus] replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’?
(Mt 19:4-5)

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
(John 8:31-32)


That
, Rev. Thomas, is freedom.
