Re: “Same-Sex Couples Can Get A Blessing at Sewanee

Diatribean!!, the Book of Common Prayer makes clear that there's a difference between a wedding and the blessing of a civil marriage. You have a different opinion?

Re: “Same-Sex Couples Can Get A Blessing at Sewanee

Folks, Diatribian!! is correct. The title of this post should have been "More people than usual can have pleasant religious gatherings where their moms cry at Sewanee." I concede his point. I also eagerly await the moment when he stands outside of the services of straight Episcopal couples and demands that anyone who had a civil wedding before having the big church service dare not colloquially refer to the religious service as a wedding, since, under Episcopal rules, it also is not. I'm sure that will be bags of fun.

Re: “Real-life Ghosts, Edith Wharton and an Exhibition Scheduled for May: A Q&A With "Wraiths for Writing" Author Amelia Garretson-Persans

How can a post full of such good news--a show! a book!--fill me with such sadness? I am so bummed this is ending. It's been the best thing. Thank you, Amelia.

Re: “Notes From the 422nd Annual Wraiths for Writing Conference: 'Ashes to Ashes'

I have loved every single bit of this and that line distresses me so much. It's about ghosts. Can't they just haunt the conference center forever and we never have to be done with it?

Re: “Haslam Ducks and Dodges Gay Rights Questions

The best part is how he's committed to this idea of sending everyone to college so that he can fill jobs, but he won't do this basic thing necessary to attract the best professors to those colleges. His big legacy project is already being tripped up by his inability to lead on this issue.
