...There will be a split in this church that I so dearly love. I – and every other lesbian, gay man, bisexual and transgender person in the Episcopal Church – knows that we will be blamed.This story of Convention needs to be considered a microcosm that reflects the macrocosm for some in the Episcopal Church. It is a terribly sad story, yet offers hope, if we keep Elizabeth's message in mind..."love them anyway."
And, we’ll also know that it’s not really our fault.
My enemies will hate me. Lord have mercy, how they will hate me!
But now, having been held as I cried, I think I can love them anyway.
