National Cathedral to Start Performing Same Sex Marriages

The 106-year old Washington National Cathedral, where Ronald Reagan had his funeral, has announced that it will start performing same sex marriages.

Reverend Gary Hall, the cathedral's dean, said performing same-sex marriages is an opportunity to break down barriers and build a more inclusive community.

Given the cathedral’s heavy schedule, it will probably be six months to a year before the first ceremony is performed.

Given the howls of indignation from the Religious Right over the first gay marriage at West Point’s Cadet Chapel last month this one should be lots of fun.
