The ban on same-sex weddings in the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee is causing church members on all sides of the issue a great deal of emotional pain. And, they want the national church to know that. Lay and clergy delegates of the diocese approved a resolution Saturday afternoon to send that message to the triennial General Convention, the Episcopal Church’s governing body that is meeting in July in Austin, Texas. It was approved nearly unanimously during the diocese's Annual Convention at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Murfreesboro. The General Convention is expected to address same-sex marriage again.
