CofE attacked for holding to biblical position on sexual relationships

from The Christian Institute:

The Church of England has been attacked by LGBT campaigners – including some of its own bishops – for stating it will stick to the biblical position on sexual morality.

A document released last week by the House of Bishops said marriage between one man and one woman has always been regarded as “central to the stability and health of human society”.

But some have objected to the Bishops’ declaration that sexual relationships outside heterosexual marriage “are regarded as falling short of God’s purposes for human beings”.


In an open letter to the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, dissenters attacked the Church for holding to biblical teaching, and accused it of being “obsessed with sex”.

The signatories also claimed the Bishops’ statement “has significantly damaged the mission of the church”, and said the tone of the document was “offensive” and “uncaring of its impact on the millions of people it affects”.

The letter was signed by Alan Wilson, the Bishop of Buckingham; Jayne Ozanne, an LGBT activist and member of the General Synod, and a number of other prominent figures within the Church.
