For Once

For once, the church was on the right side. For once, we Episcopalians were ahead of the times.

We have for decades been taking heat for our support of gay relationships. We have long been in favor of gun control. After the Orlando massacre, we can be glad that none of our social and political positions would have encouraged the shooter.

But, of course, this is very small comfort as we pray for so many victims and their families and friends. And blameless as we may be as a church, this was a dark night for religion. —J. Douglas Ousley
