mauvepink BS: Gay church 'marriages' set to get the go (180* d) RE: BS: Gay church 'marriages' set to get the go 15 Feb 11


Thanks again Pete

There is one aspect of this of course that thus far is a puzzlement. They also say they will give heterosexual couples the chance to have civil partnerships (I think in some way toward showing equal treatment). I have not heard any statements from church bosses saying how they will go about saving the souls of all those people not being blessed in the eyes of God nor those who never get married but live together. They do not seem to get turned away from churches (and of course there is totally no reason why they should be either).

It all comes down to sex in the end, it seems, and is quite arbitrary as to who allows what and interprets which scripture. If the church could get past the sex issue they could maybe welcome more souls of which they should be happy about. Their domain should actually be that of souls surely and not sexuality in light of modern developments?

Still, things ARE changing slowly and for that I am grateful as they appear to get more momentum and positive support.

with respect
