Response Mixed After Amherst, MA Episcopal Priest Stops Conducting Weddings

Reverend Robert Hirschfeld of Grace Episcopal Church in Amherst, Massachusetts caused an uproar earlier this month when he announced that his congregation would no longer perform weddings. He took a wedding fast, as he calls it, in solidarity with gays and lesbians not allowed to marry in the Episcopal Church. Hirschfeld told WFCR’s Karen Brown, the reaction to his decision has been mixed.
