Episcopal convention rejects same-sex union rites.

I'm not surprised -- and in a way, I'm not even all that disappointed. By the time the 2008 convention rolls around, and certainly by the one after that, there will most likely be legal same-sex marriage hereabouts, especially if the Massachusetts case goes the right way. So I'd almost rather just see the ECUSA use the regular old marriage rite for same-sex weddings, the one that's already right there in the Book of Common Prayer, rather than codify second-class treatment for same-sex couples (and shunt them off to a secondary book of liturgy).

Not that it matters for me, really -- the Episcopal Church and I have had our parting of the ways, and linuxspice and I would be married in the First Church of the Goddess anyway.
