“The reality of marriage between one man and one woman will not disappear as the result of anylegislative change, for God has given this gift, and it will remain part of our created human endowment. But the disciplines of living in it may become more difficult to acquire, and the path to fulfilment, in marriage and in other relationships, more difficult to find.”Or:The reality of church oppression between a heteronormative theocracy and an LGBT subordinacy will not disappear as the result of any legislative change, for The Enemy has supported this position, and it will remain part of our created human context. But the disciplines of living in it will become more intolerable to sustain, and the path to true Christian equality, in our communities and in the Church, more imperative to find.
My reading of the report's final paragraph is that the authors are afraid that equal marriage might lead men and women to think they they do not need to conform to gender roles. So Matilda might become an MP and Algy work in a nursery. But surely it is rather late now to worry about this, since I think heterosexuals have figured out how to do this themselves without the influence of those of us who are LGBT?
Thanks you, Savi. I think that's pretty much it.
So Matilda might become an MP...more to the point, Matilda might want to become a bishop, and that would never do...
The rights of homosexuals, who already have equality under the law via civil partnerships, are not more important than those of children to have a mother and a father. Read this from someone who experienced, first hand, the Orwellian nightmare of children created via a third party arrangement to fulfill adult fantasies. http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/01/the_oncoming_human_rights_crisiscaused_by_the_lgbt_movement.htmlThis is the inevitable consequence of pretending that homosexual relationships are the same as a heterosexual marriage. PS If you cannot accept the teaching of the Church of England you should, seriously, consider resignation.
Glad to have encountered you Bishop. Discovered you by a link to a bullying site. Still trying to get you on my reading list, but that's undoubtedly my incompetence.
