I surely hope that the Diocese of San Diego will dissociate itself from the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

“Whereas, there are persons in the Episcopal Church (gay and lesbian, SENIORS AND OTHERS CONSTRAINED BY FINANCIAL CONCERNS) who are in committed, monogamous relationships who wish to have their relationships blessed in the church by a clergy person”—-Resolution 08-09

This is a new argument for unorthodox “blessings”: elderly people (and others) too poor to afford marriage.

BTW, a marriage license costs $50 and requires no blood test. http://arcc.co.san-diego.ca.us/services/marriage_licenses.aspx

I know an elderly couple who live together because if they were legally married, she would lose the pension from her first husband. I’m not saying it’s moral, only that there are financial considerations.

Medicare benefit asset tests are another reason for not legally marrying. This geriatric marriage situation is another reason why the state ought to get out of marriage control. The state should pose obstacles in the way of the citizen’s moral choices.

Am I the only one to ever puzzle why it should be lawful for a pension to be withdrawn from someone whose late spouse earned it for the both of them through years of labor, just because the widow/er remarries?  If we’re going to change laws, change the ones which that are unjust.

The diocese might disassociate itself from the “Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice,” but the chances of them leaving TEC are zero.

The diocese will not leave TEC - Bishop Mathes was one of the four bishops that brought presentment charges months ago against Bishop Schofield. He is very much a company man. Note that the resolution on disassociation from the RCRC was proposed by one of the few orthodox (Forward in Faith rector) parishes left in the diocese of San Diego (NOT the diocese). Most other traditional parishes have left for Uganda, the Southern Cone, or one of the continuing churches.
