The Rev. Susan Russell, a priest at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, said she doesn't remember feeling anxious the Tuesday late last month when she sat at the front of a packed lecture hall in Nottingham, England, to explain herself to the spiritual leader of her faith. "There was nothing to cram for at the last minute," she said of the defense she gave to Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and the Anglican Consultative Council about the U.S.

Pastor Gregory L. Waybright struggled from the pulpit Sunday to reconcile the laws of God with the laws of man. Though he wanted his church "to be a welcoming and loving house," he told worshipers at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, the California Supreme Court's decision last week to legalize gay marriage in California "is a contradiction of what God's word says."

Despite the increasing number of those who hold other faiths or no faith, Christians still wield substantial influence on our nation's cultural and ethical norms. After all, 73% of Americans still identify as Christian, according to a 2012 Pew Forum Study. So the fact that many churchgoers have changed their views about gay civil rights in recent years is one of the major under-reported reasons why same-sex marriage is now legal in nine states. It is also one of the reasons that the constitutional challenge to Proposition 8, which took away gay Californians' right to marry, may get a hearing in the Supreme Court this term (an announcement is expected on Monday)

Re "Making the Case for Full Inclusion of Homosexuals," July 9: I really enjoyed the profile of the Rev. Susan Russell; it was a refreshing change. Generally, when the media cover gays and Christianity in the same story, they highlight the judgmental views of the religious right so much that I often hide the fact that I'm a Christian. When my former church refused to marry a wonderful gay couple who had been attending the church together for years, I stopped attending in shame. I didn't return to church for eight years until I discovered All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, where Russell is one of the priests.

Responding to C.S. Pearce's Dec. 2 Op-Ed article, "The Christian case for gay marriage," reader Tony Hillbruner of San Gabriel wrote: "The Bible does not discuss gay marriage, but it condemns homosexual activity. In Romans 1:27, 'men ... were inflamed with lust for one another [and] committed indecent acts with other men.' 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 condemns a variety of 'wrongdoers,' including adulterers, male prostitutes and homosexuals. "Pearce cites Leviticus 20:13, but she focuses on its call to execute homosexuals and not on its core message: that a man who sleeps with a man has done something 'detestable.' While the punishment is foolishly excessive, this does not eliminate the biblical condemnation of homosexual behavior.
