Hurrah for the British Columbian Anglicans! They recently approved same-sex church blessings. I've always had a soft spot
in my Humanist /Pagan/Whatever heart for Anglicans ever since they ordained a gay bishop, the Right Reverend V. Gene Robinson (who is celebrating his own marriage in the middle of 2008),and ordained a female bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori. God does not discriminate. Congratulations to Rev.Gene Robinson and his partner, Mark Andrews.

Congratulations also to Mary Cheney and her partner Heather Poe for little Samuel David Cheney born on May 23, 2007. The bundle of lesbian joy was 8 pounds, 6 ounces. The Religious Right is having a hissy fit about the birth with the accusation that the parents are sinful but Mary Cheney is no Karla Homolka, the serial killer, who had a baby boy too. Leave the Cheney-Poes alone with their kid. Let them muddle, like all new parents muddle, through the sleepless nights, disappointments and joys without the religious guilt trip.
