This morning the BBC is reporting some headlines about the Church of England's response to the equal civil marriage consultation. I read the article with despondency and despair. You can see it here: BBC News: Church of England warning on gay marriage
I was hoping that the poor light by which the CofE was reflected in the article was more about poor journalism and dramatic reporting, so I dug out the actual Church of England response to consultation on equal civil marriage and now I just hang my head in shame.
I agree with much of what the Church of England response says in its biblical context and upholding of the sanctity of marriage. But my despair though is that the response shows a church which is refusing to think about WWJD (what would Jesus do) and how marriage is so much more than old definitions.
Not a great day for CofE public relations!
