It is also probably the only place that has a stained glass window with a moon rock imbedded.

You should go inside with your camera. Churches and cathedrals have some of the finest paintings, frescoes, and architecture on the inside. I have over a thousand photos of the insides of churches from the U.S. and Europe. Many of them being stain-glass windows, a fascination of mine. I also photograph the stain-glass windows of mausoleums from many of the cemeteries. You are missing some really great photographs.
Did you ever go to Mount Carmel cemetery outside Chicago? Not really all that old, but lots of mausoleums with stained glass windows made all the more interesting because they primarily inter dead mobsters! In 2011 I was in Italy and had a chance to go into the Cathedral of Siena - talk about art! Gorgeous frescoes and floor mosaics and one chapel with a Donatello with another chapel with a Bernini on the other side!

How tragic that a formerly Christian structure is used for a very un-Christian activity!

The Bible is the basis of Christianity and all homosexual behavior is repeatedly condemned in the plainest of language in both Testaments.

It's sad to see an historic denomination hijacked by anti-Christian philosophies.

What! Don't you believe the Episcopals should have the freedom of their religious beliefs?

It is quite doubtful that most Episcopalians accept homosexual behavior as moral. Doing so is in conflict with their own founding and defining documents.

Many have left ECUSA over this issue. The national despots hold many parishes and diocese officially within the fold by promising to steal their property if they leave. Here in Illinois, one of three dioceses has left ECUSA (Quincy). Another (Springfield) ignores their anti-Biblical stance on this issue and allies itself with Anglicans that still honor the Bible. The third (Chicago) has lost a number of parishes as well as members over the issue.

Funds were collected for the National Cathedral over a period of many years and based on principles of the faith and of Christianity that this new policy violates.

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments. A church that places itself in opposition to the Bible is no longer Christian.

You really aren't. You worship your perversion and don't mind sacrificing an historic faith over it.

Some ECUSA leadership has certainly departed from Christianity, along with you. They have broken with the very founding documents of the Episcopal Church/Church of England.

VI. Of the Sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures for Salvation.
Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation. In the name of the Holy Scripture we do understand those canonical Books of the Old and New Testament, of whose authority was never any doubt in the Church.

Of the Names and Number of the Canonical Books.
Genesis, The First Book of Samuel, The Book of Esther,
Exodus, The Second Book of Samuel, The Book of Job,
Leviticus, The First Book of Kings, The Psalms,
Numbers, The Second Book of Kings, The Proverbs,
Deuteronomy, The First Book of Chronicles, Ecclesiastes or Preacher,
Joshua, The Second Book of Chronicles, Cantica, or Songs of Solomon,
Judges, The First Book of Esdras, Four Prophets the greater,
Ruth, The Second Book of Esdras, Twelve Prophets the less.

And the other Books (as Hierome saith) the Church doth read for example of life and instruction of manners; but yet doth it not apply them to establish any doctrine; such are these following:

The Third Book of Esdras, The rest of the Book of Esther,
The Fourth Book of Esdras, The Book of Wisdom,
The Book of Tobias, Jesus the Son of Sirach,
The Book of Judith, Baruch the Prophet,
The Song of the Three Children, The Prayer of Manasses,
The Story of Susanna, The First Book of Maccabees,
Of Bel and the Dragon, The Second Book of Maccabees.

All the Books of the New Testament, as they are commonly received, we do receive, and account them Canonical.

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms. One who holds opinions contrary to Scripture is not a Christian.

Why would ANYONE who IS NOT an Episcopalian or GAY be so concerned?

Support for homosexual causes runs contrary to the founding documents of the Episcopal Church. Blessing relationships that God condemns is certainly a breach of faith:

XX. Of the Authority of the Church.
The Church hath power to decree Rites or Ceremonies, and authority in Controversies of Faith: and yet it is not lawful for the Church to ordain any thing that is contrary to God's Word written, neither may it so expound one place of Scripture, that it be repugnant to another. Wherefore, although the Church be a witness and a keeper of Holy Writ, yet, as it ought not to decree any thing against the same, so besides the same ought it not to enforce any thing to be believed for necessity of Salvation.

Hey David, how do you find so much time to look up religious crapola while still trying to have sex with your own kids?

Your ridiculous fantasies only make YOU look pathetic, as well as your horrible hate based radical homosexual cause.

You are a liar that cannot substantiate your filthy fantasies and your lie about my identity.

This is a thread dealing with the tragedy of a national house of worship being usurped from its original purposes to celebrate relationships that the Christian Bible repeatedly condemns.

Totally awesome!

On another note; the gay church in our town has some nice century-old stained glass of its own

They are pretty, but who was the original religious sect that installed them?

Never been to the cemetery, but have visited the cathedral. Have some photos of it myself. I'll put the cemetery on my wish list. Thanks.

Say this prayer every night.

"God, if you exist, save my soul, if I have one". I don't remember the person to whom it is attributed, but I find it very helpful.
