WASHINGTON — Washington National Cathedral plans to hold a special prayer service for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families on the day when the Supreme Court may rule on the legality of gay marriage.
In a statement, the cathedral’s dean, the Rev. Gary Hall, says having the freedom to marry you love is not only a constitutional right but also a moral right. Hall announced in January that the cathedral would begin performing same-sex marriages.
