It looks like the discriminatory restrictions have been lifted. From https://www.facebook.com/ernest.lissabe ... 3267251297:

ANNOUNCEMENT

The America-Europe Parish of the Korean Buddhist Taego Order has made the following announcement (Press Release Pending):

1. The Taego Order America-Europe Parish clergy are now authorized to officiate same-sex marriages.
"The America-Europe Parish clergy are now authorized to officiate same-sex marriages in accord with the highly valued virtues and moral principles of non-discrimination, compassion, love, and complete acceptance. The America-Europe Parish governing body and sangha members have worked hard to champion the cultivation of attitudes and behaviors of complete inclusiveness and loving-compassion for all of our brothers and sisters, regardless of sexual orientation or preference."

2. The Taego Order America-Europe Parish welcomes and accepts gay novices to become Taego clergy (meaning fully ordained bhikshu and bhikshuni).
"The America-Europe Parish welcomes and openly accepts all persons, regardless of any sexual orientation or preference to become Taego clergy. The America-Europe Parish administration is committed to enforcing fair and equal treatment to all prospective novices and strives to continue being an exemplary open and loving sangha, embracing and supporting all persons."

It took a little while, but I am very pleased to see this further evoulution of the rights and responsibiites of our Taego Order cergy here in North America and In Europe.

Hapjang,

Hae In Sunim Ernest Lissabet
Associate Bishop, America-Europe Parish

As a side note, what a lucky guy I am! I live 5 miles from a Taego Order Bishop.
