Still, the handwriting is on the wall. And at least this one bishop is not blind to the message.
+Frade's decision is based on the passage of C056 at the General Convention in Anaheim this year. He is clear to say he is NOT authorizing priests to marry couples, nor would he ask a priest to bless a same-sex couple if the priest finds this truly too personally difficult to do. Still, +Frade is the ONLY Episcopal bishop that I am aware of in the Sunshine State who is trying to really fulfill the spirit of C056 and administer pastoral care to same-sex couples.
Thank you, +Frade. May your actions inspire others to be as generous toward the LGBT faithful of the Episcopal Church.
Hmmm... how's the real estate market in southeast Florida.....
