According to a recent article in a Halifax paper, the Rev. Sue Moxley, Anglican bishop of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, loves the idea of same-sex blessings; can't wait to get on with them. She has participated in Gay Pride parades in the past, and plans to do so in the future.
She supports the "local option" idea. A parish can bless homosexual unions if they want to, but doesn't have to. She goes on to say that it's like polygamy, which apparently, is a local option in some parts of the Anglicansphere.
From her remarks I assume that Bishop Sue is OK with polygamy, and would be a gung-ho participant at any upcoming Polygamist-Pride event.
I can see this going in a couple of directions.
First, I think polygamy would be a very good idea for Prince Edward Island, and I'm glad to see that bishop Sue is open-minded and not elitist or exclusionary. Not mandatory polygamy, mind you, but polygamy as a local option, perhaps out in King's County. It's great to know that if we go this route, we have a least one bishop ready to roll out the blessings.
Second, this. Bishop Sue is definitely OK with same-sex blessings. She's apparently OK with polygamy. I wonder if she's ever thought of the possibility of combining the two? Would gay polygamy be wrong? Presumably not. There's not even a gender-equality issue to worry about.
All God's children got a place in the choir!
On with the show!
