Nice news out of Alabama - of all places

According to NECN:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A retired United Methodist bishop from Tennessee said Monday that he will perform a wedding service for two men in Alabama despite opposition from the presiding bishop, who says the ceremony will violate church law.

Bishop Melvin G. Talbert, who has been active in efforts to eliminate barriers to gay marriage from United Methodist doctrine, said it will be an honor to officiate at the ceremony later this month in metro Birmingham for Joe Openshaw and Bobby Prince.
The couple were legally married in the District of Columbia last month. Sometimes we – I – forget that there really are good religious people who reside within the former Confederacy.
