|The Dean of St. Pauls Gets Gay|
St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, Oklahoma City, and Holy Trinity, Guthrie, have announced plans to hold gay blessing ceremonies, becoming the first two Episcopal churches in the Western half of Oklahoma to offer same sex blessings.
For Justin Lindstrom, the newly appointed Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral, the blessings are "appropriate" because other sorts of relationships are also blessed. “We ask God to bless all types of relationships, and so for us to formally ask God to bless same gender couples seems very appropriate to this community,” said the deep-thinking Dean.

Gay marriage is illegal in Oklahoma, unlike open carry, which is not, unless you go to Starbucks where it's banned. Unlike Oklahoma, Texas does not allow open carry, strangely, even though some some of its Episcopalian dioceses do allow same sex blessings.
The Diocese of Fort Worth does not permit gay marriage and its clergy cannot open carry, even though we are allowed to shoot pistols. Confusing, eh?
