David Wolpe, the rabbi of...
The Times has a mildly interesting story about it, but what surprised me was this paragraph (my emphasis):
Rabbi Wolpe said that while he looked forward to conducting same-sex marriages, he would continue to refuse to perform interfaith weddings, again reflecting the policy of the Conservative movement.
And I thought about my Irish Catholic mother-in-law who couldn't marry a man in the 1950s because he was divorced but could marry my non-observant Jewish father-in-law.
Isn't religion a funny thing?
