Sister Wendy on Gay Marriage: God is All Love

Verena von Pfetten of the Huffington Post talks to nun and art historian Sister Wendy in a recent interview, and asks a question about gay marriage and reconciling her beliefs with the church. Can we have a debate featuring Sister Wendy, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee?

SisterwendyQ: You’ve spoken out about gay marriage. How do you balance what you believe with what you have sworn to uphold?

Sister Wendy: I believe in loyalty. We should respect our church, but never believe that the church has the last word. The church is saying “this”, but I believe that sooner or later “this” will change. “This” is not the mind of our Lord. God is all love. It’s a delicate balancing thing. The Church has changed it’s position over the years, and because the spirit is with the Church, in the end the Church will always get it right. But in the end. The spirit of the Church is the meaning of love, which hasn’t yet, perhaps, been fully understood.
