Answer by Robert Brow (www.brow.on.ca)
Answer: The word "blessing" is not
helpful in this
discussion. In the New Testament the people to be blessed are
enemies. "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them"
(Romans 12:14). The NRSV translates the same Greek word as "Love your
enemies" (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27). The traditional Anglican
marriage service is for a man and a woman to commit themselves to a
permanent life together, usually with the intention of having
children. I see no reason to change that.
