Marriage equality is good for the church

From The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette-

Over the past few months, I have officiated at several same-gender weddings. Once this option became a legal reality in Pennsylvania, lots of couples inquired about being married in our church. I can honestly say that marriage equality has not only been a blessing for these couples, it has been good for the church.

Preparing for a same-gender marriage resembles most other wedding-planning rituals. Any couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who asks about being married in our church receives a fairly standard response: Weddings are done for couples who have a relationship with the church andideally are members of the congregation.
