Tragedy if gay issue destroyed church
Just as the issue of women priests divided the Church of England the question of gay marriages is threatening to do the same. And just as the ordination of women priests led to traditionalists leaving the church then the prospect of gay marriages could do the same. In fact it could split the church irrevocably.
And that would be a tragedy. For the Church of England is made up of tens of thousands of intelligent, forward thinking people who do tremendous good in the world.
The Church of England is amongst the first to denounce inequality, the mistreatment of minorities or the discrimination of people because of their sexuality.
Its leaders challenge wrong doings wherever they see them, they openly criticise politicians, they call for and earnestly want to see a fairer world.

The issue of gay marriage is divisive not because it involves two people of the same sex marrying, but doing so in the sight of God.
Yet there will be gay people in every church, in every congregation in the land. There always have been, there always will be.
And they are no less Christian than anyone else.
They are human beings just like everyone else.
So do they have any less right than anyone else to stand before God and declare their love?
