Recently I visited Minnesota to meet folks involved in the marriage equality debate. I was inspired by the amount of energy that people were devoting to the cause, and to emphasizing dialogue and conversation instead of shouting and slogans. To those sincerely wrestling with this issue, I offer four points to consider.
- Your church will never have to hold any kind of wedding it doesn't want to.
- You're right to be stuck on the word "marriage."
- Marriage has always evolved.
- It really is about "separate but equal."
