Humor: Episcopalians Reject Blessing Gay Unions

This from Scrappleface:

Confusion about the wording of a resolution caused the Episcopal House of Deputies to reject "blessing gay unions" yesterday.

The resolution was returned to committee for more research to determine exactly which unions are 'gay'.

While members of the United Auto Workers, for example, earn relatively high wages, frequent labor disputes lead many Episcopalians to believe that they're not really gay.

"How could you be happy with so much labor strife," said one unnamed church deputy. "We're not opposed to blessing these unions, but we just want to make sure we have agreement on what we mean by 'gay unions'."

In other action, the Episcopal church approved allowing local churches to "celebrate and bless" pairs of homosexuals who pledge mutual sexual fidelity for life.
