Storyline

After living together for seven years in a seemingly accepting community in New York City, Edward DeBonis and Vincent Maniscalco decide to get married. But unlike many other gay couples who formalize their relationship in a domestic union, Vincent and Edward, both devout Catholics, will settle for nothing short of the "Holy Sacrament of Marriage." The couple's request to The New York Times to announce their wedding in the weekly "Styles" section throws the newspaper into disarray. Publishing the first Catholic gay wedding announcement presents the editors with numerous controversial questions: Is a gay priest a real priest? Can a gay union be called a wedding? Can a gay couple be considered Catholic? As America stands on the verge of legal acceptance of gay and lesbian unions, "Saints and Sinners" explores the social, political and religious aspects of same-sex marriage and examines its effect on American society.

Great story
19 February 2006 | by AntonSee all my reviews

A moving story of two people in love, Edward and Vincent, and their fight for equal rights. It's about people who determined to celebrate their relationship on their terms.

"Saints and Sinners" explores the social, political and religious aspects of same-sex marriage and examines its effect on American society. It shows how unfairly the Catholic Church treats gays and lesbians. (For Edward, who grew up as an altar boy, and Vincent, who was baptized at Old St. Patrick's Cathedral in Little Italy and who attends Sunday Mass regularly, getting married outside the Catholic tradition is not an option.) Powerful argument for legalization of gay marriage.
