WASHINGTON — The dean of Washington National Cathedral is calling homophobia a sin during a weekend of events devoted to gay youth at the church.
In a sermon Sunday, the Very Rev. Gary Hall said the church should have the courage to call homophobia and heterosexism a sin. He says “shaming people for whom they love is a sin.”
Hall also hosted a forum Sunday with Shepard’s mother, Judy Shepard, and with Clementi’s mother, Jane Clementi.
Earlier this year, Hall announced the prominent Episcopal cathedral that often hosts national events would begin celebrating same-sex marriages.
