A Kiev art museum contains a curious icon from St. Catherine’s Monastery on Mt. Sinai in Israel. It shows two robed Christian saints. Between them is a traditional Roman ‘pronubus’ (a best man), overseeing a wedding. The pronubus is Christ. The married couple are both men.
Well well well, isn’t this an interesting little tidbit to find out there on the Intarwebs.
It would appear, gentle reader, that way back in the day (even into the 1600′s) that the Christian church performed gay marriages. There are Christian liturgical writings that exist that formalize how to perform same-sex holy unions, and document multiple instances of such unions taking place across several centuries.
