In the press

There’s a good report in the Herald on same-sex couples being allowed to marry for the first time in New York state.

There’s a brief comment on the situation in Scotland, where gay couples can enter into a Civil Partnership and then if they wish have a blessing. Part of the report is a bit about a Eucharist I celebrated for Richard Mason and Ben Morse a couple of years ago.

The service was featured in Italian Vanity Fair but though there were a number of reporters present, there were not many news reports here. I wrote about it at the time on my blog and there were a couple of secondary reports of that then.

Interestingly, the pull quote that the Herald have used is a comment from Ben which is not so much about one sacrament as about another: “We had atheists and Jews taking communion – they thought ‘if this is what religion can be, we’ll take part’. It was profound, feeling that we had this blessing upon us.”

When you are done, head over to have a look at these photographs.
