It still amazes me, after yesterday’s coverage of the Churches actions surrounding Equal Marriage that the debate, if you can really call it a debate holds any merit.
As I listen and read the news and constantly get told how we as “Gay” people are not permitted to love, well, not allowed to love under the eyes of the Church anyway. After all the commotion yesterday, reading a letter in churches around the UK, did what?
The debate should be about the religion, the bible and the values as they stand in today’s modern society. Gone are the days where the church can keep using the same line, for one man and one woman, for education and procreation…. we have seen the New Bible, well lets have a 2012 Bible and make change. Everyone else has
I read a article awhile back about how the church needs to be more liberal when it comes to unmarried mothers/parents. They even went as far as to promote a campaign to promote “get married and have a Christening” at the same time.
The Bishop of Wakefield commented “Patterns of relationship and marriage within society are presenting new opportunities for the church” I wonder if he meant this in a positive way.
If the church can accept unmarried couples, births out of wedlock, couples cohabiting without being married, single mothers and so the list goes on, can they actually stand there and say they are true to the word of the Bible, I think not
If the church stopped forcing their Homophobic views on people and presented themselves as true representatives of the church then maybe people will stand up and listen.
To take the debate to the playground is a joke, how can we be compared to slavery, cannibalism and pedophilia?
The “What’s Next” person
I love this kind of person, I had one gentleman say to me in a public debate, what’s next, are we going to allow our pets to marry?
Really? Is this the level of debate we have in front of us
Bottom line, I find it a real shame that people cannot just talk, be civil and not slander publicly and incite hatred
