No same-sex blessings for Florida Episcopalians

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that "Orlando Episcopal Bishop Gregory Brewer plans to announce on Saturday that he will not sanction same-sex union blessings in his diocese, as recently approved by the Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies and the House of Bishops." (H/T Religion News Service news roundup.)

"I see nothing in the Scriptures or in our Anglican tradition that give me permission to expand or redefine the institution of marriage," Brewer writes.
