Lesbian clergy couple go on Amazing Race

"Just plain fun"
Kate Lewis and Pat Hendrickson may be ordained clergy, but even before they became the latest couple eliminated from television’s The Amazing Race, they knew that God wasn’t really watching.

“We are religious people, but we have no illusions that God cares whether we win The Amazing Race,” Lewis, 49, an Episcopal priest, said on the November 11 episode.

God may not have been watching, but millions of other viewers were.
