All Saints Church applauds today’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Walker as a giant step forward for justice.
“The love life of every human being is sacred,” said All Saints rector Ed Bacon. “It is a gift from God. This is true not only for heterosexual couples but for those who have found that the love of their life is a person of the same gender.”
“When a state forbids a couple who has found such love from marrying it is an abusive form of injustice and discrimination to a class of human beings – and All Saints Church rejoices today that Judge Walker has ruled against that injustice.”
“Marriage equality promotes healthy marriage for all people. Here at All Saints Church we are all about turning the human race into the human family. And we rejoice with the gay and lesbian members of that family who today heard from Judge Walker the message we send every day from All Saints Church: that they are equal in every way and entitled not only to equal blessing by the church but to equal protection of the Constitution.”
On Sunday, August 8th All Saints Church will host an informational forum including legal experts and faith leaders speaking in response to today’s ruling. 10:15 a.m. in the All Saints Forum.
