Thinking Anglicans carries a report from The Telegraph that the Church is to allow remarried divorcees to become bishops. So, leaving a spouse and breaking sacred marriage vows is considered less culpable than entering into a life long same sex relationship? Is this the steer from the Church? Some traditionalists may complain, but will this be a Communion breaking issue? Far from it ; deviations from scripture which are convenient to heterosexuals are tolerated.
It is not the decision itself that I necessarily disagree with, just the double standards. More and more I fight the feeling that being involved in the Church makes me a part of something which is nasty and morally shabby.
