    The Episcopal Church does NOT allow same-sex marriages. TEC does allow the blessing of same-sex unions – even in states where same-sex marriage is not legal. The priests, however, must have the approval of their bishops to perform this rite.

    Please follow the text in front of you.

    With Marvel creating a TV show for S.H.I.E.L.D., it would be an amazing opportunity to take up some of the lesser known characters like Hulkling and Wiccan.

    I’d *love* to see that happen, it would be a great story line for the show, whether they were taken on as main characters or recurring, etc.
