  •  A blessing for same sex unions (5+ / 0-)

    more than a prayer service yet still lacking the word "marriage."

    However, in the eyes of most Episcopalians it's a marriage. My father, an Episcopal Priest, has long believed the church should be out of the marriage business entirely and that all the church should do is bless the union of a couple in the eyes of the church and God... leaving the marriage piece to civil legal proceedings where they belong.

    In fact this is really what happens. A priest or minister for a brief moment becomes a legal official of the state in the act of signing a marriage certificate. But when they perform a wedding what they do is bless a union between two people in the eyes of the church and God.
