A minister and a rabbi walk into a lesbian wedding…

I’ve been reading the internet chatter on this couple. And then the follow-up comments opposing those comments. And then the rebuttals to the comments opposing those comments. I did not see even one opinion on the Jewish-Christian issue. Apparently, gay trumps faith.
