Sweet Home Alabama!

Sheppards and Lapsley Presbytery in Alabama of all places voted convincingly (75-39) in favor of marriage equality today!  Here is that story.
"I'd just like to be able to do my job and marry couples when the state of Alabama says okay," said the Rev. Shannon Webster, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham. That includes being able to perform weddings for gay couples in his church who are in committed relationships, he said.
Joining Sheppards and Lapsley on the yes train were Baltimore and Southeastern Illinois.   46-18 is the latest tally.

Alabama will come on board as soon as the SCOTUS passes on the entire 50 states....lots of bigoted folks who are of the Baptist faith will stand up til they get shot down!

We recently had our wedding at this place, and we couldn't have been happier. We had a particular vision for our wedding, and we were given just that. The NYC wedding venues have a unique space, with an incredible view. Highly recommended!
