INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) - The U.S. Episcopal Church on Tuesday approved a liturgy for clergy to use in blessing same-sex unions, including gay marriages in states where they are legal, becoming the largest U.S. religious denomination to approve such a ritual.

The Orthodox Church may wish to consider no longer acting as an element of the state authority in those states where "same-sex marriage" is legal.

In other words, the priests would not sign state-issued marriage licenses.

So ECUSA has only made official what they've been doing unofficially for 20 years.  Yawn.

Result--more people leaving ECUSA and ECUSA hopefully will fade away into oblivion.
