Bishop Wendell GibbsA Bishop in the Episcopal Church offered his strong support for marriage equality in Michigan.

Pink News reports:

Bishop Wendell Gibbs is the head of the Episcopal church in southeastern Michigan, and offered the opinion to more than 80 churches in his remit. The announcement does not mean that same-sex marriage can immediately take place in Episcopal churches in the state, as technically same-sex unions go against formal church teachings. He said: “Picking and choosing whose rights should be protected or which civil rights the church will support is neither American ‘justice for all’ nor supported by the God of salvation history. I stand in support of marriage equality and pray that our justice system will work to break down the walls of segregation, promote the humanity of all and calm our irrational fears,” Gibbs continued.

It’s amazing to see so many people of faith finally standing up for the LGBT community and marriage equality.
