National Cathedral celebrates gay marriage rulings

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC -

The National Cathedral rang its church bells, along with some other Washington churches, to celebrate the Supreme Court's decisions on gay marriage.

Cathedral spokesman Richard Weinberg says the bells rang at noon Wednesday for 45 minutes to an hour. Bells were also set to ring at other Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, Unitarian and other Christian churches.

The cathedral scheduled a prayer service for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families Wednesday at 7 p.m. to celebrate the ruling.

In a statement, the cathedral's dean, the Rev. Gary Hall, says the church rang its bells "to celebrate the extension of federal marriage equality to all the same-sex couples modeling God's love in lifelong covenants."

Hall says the ruling should serve as a call for Christians to embrace religious marriage equality.
