Traditional marriage

I subscribe to a quotation-of-the-day mailing list. Tonight’s quotation is too much fun not to share:
 "The actions taken by the New Hampshire Episcopalians are an
 affront to Christians everywhere.  I am just thankful that the
 church's founder, Henry VIII, and his wife Catherine of Aragon,
 his wife Anne Boleyn, his wife Jane Seymour, his wife Anne of
 Cleves, his wife Katherine Howard, and his wife Catherine Parr
 are no longer here to suffer through this assault on traditional
 Christian marriage."
 - From an editorial in the Los Angeles Times (August 16, 2003),
   in response to the Episcopal Church's making Gene Robinson of
   New Hampshire its first (openly) gay bishop.  Quoted in The
   Christian Century on September 20, 2003.
