Tomorrow is the big day on same-sex marriage, and the National Cathedral plans to hold a prayer service on Wednesday night to celebrate or grieve over the decision. The prayer service will be held at 7am.
The cathedral is holding th especial prayer service for LGBT families. In a statement from the cathedral’s dean, Reverend Gary Hall, the freedom to marry who you love is not only a constitutional right, but a moral right. Hall announced back in January that the cathedral will hold same-sex marriage ceremonies.
Regardless of the way in which the Supreme Court rules on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Prop 8, the cathedral has said it will continue to advocate for same-sex marriage.
Anti-gay groups have already begun to prepare for the ruling by setting up to continue to push against same-sex marriage in the United States. Unfortunately for them, their position may be a difficult one to maintain if the Court rules to strike down more than just California’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Currently, marriage is legal in twelve states and the District of Columbia.
