2 Lesbian Episcopal Priests Tie The Knot

According to Lame Lambert from The Patriot Ledger:

The Rev. Lloyd and the Rev. Ragsdale were married in a ceremony at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, with about 400 guests attending. Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, the state?s highest ranking Episcopal official, presided.

Bishop Shaw has openly supported gay marriage for years. In 2009, a few months after the Episcopal general convention voted to allow ?generous pastoral response to meet the needs of members of this church,? he gave parish priests permission to perform same-sex marriages ? to ?solemnize? them, in the language of the Episcopal Church. Those actions came five years after gay marriage became legal in Massachusetts.

The Rev. Lloyd said Monday night she hopes fellow Episcopalians and others won?t focus on her marriage as a gay ceremony, but instead see it as ?a commitment and marriage like any other.?

They look so joyful, congratulations to the happy couple!
