SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20 -- Elected representatives of the Episcopal Diocese of California today approved use of rites for the blessing of same gender couples by an overwhelming margin. The action opens the way for Diocesan Bishop Marc Andrus to allow these services to be used on a trial basis by Episcopal churches across the Bay Area.

Clergy and lay delegates also approved by a broad majority a resolution countering recent opinions voiced by the Episcopal House of Bishops in New Orleans. Drafted by the Rev.

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
There is much discussion in our society concerning the issue of homosexuality and whether it is an acceptable alternative lifestyle.

The concern for the Church is how those man-centered arguments and resulting persuasions become influential in the thinking of believers. The bottomline issue becomes what, or who, is the authority on the issue at hand.

For the believer it is the Bible. The Bible, being the Word of the unchanging God, remains the standard for living and knowing what is holy and right, and what is sinful and wrong.

The Bible clearly states, from Genesis to Revelation, that homosexuality is sin. It is but one sin among many others which include adultery, fornication, lying, stealing, for which God offers forgiveness to those who repent and place their faith and trust in Christ alone.
