God’s ‘scandalous’ grace covers gays
I was sad to see almost an entire page (July 3, Page A4), including a political cartoon, bemoaning recent advances in gay rights.
I’d like to assert that it is possible to be a devout Christian and agree with the Supreme Court decision overturning DOMA (the defense of marriage act).
And, yes, it is possible to study Holy Scripture and conclude that same-sex marriage is an acceptable expression of love in the eyes of God.
And it’s also possible for a church to welcome all people (and their families), knowing that each of us is there only because of Our Father’s scandalous grace.
I know it is possible because I am such a Christian, and my church (The Episcopal Church) is such a church.
