New Church of England Archbishop Says Bible Must Bend to Modern Sexual Morality

A battle that pits current culture notions about sexual morality against the teachings of the Bible is on full display in the Church of England.

The incoming Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell believes biblical teaching on sexuality should come second to 21st-century Western cultural beliefs, according to The Christian Institute.

Next year, Cottrell will become the second most senior clergyman in the Church of England.

Cottrell made his comments on the Bible two years ago when he embraced the Archbishops of Canterbury and York’s plea for a “radical new Christian inclusion.”

He said it would be wrong to ignore the “damage” that is done by rejecting Western society’s current view of human sexuality.

“I am not sure the church has ever before had to face the challenge of being seen as immoral by the culture in which it is set,” Cottrell said.

He also claimed, in the same address to leaders in his own diocese, that taking a biblical view on same-sex relationships “can legitimize homophobia in others.”
