Senior Anglicans: there’s nothing to fear from equal marriage

The BBC reports:

A group of leading Anglicans says the Church of England has “nothing to fear” from the prospect of gay marriage and it is should be a cause for rejoicing.

In a letter to The Times [£], prominent figures including five former bishops say statements by church leaders give a false impression of popular feeling.

“We believe the Church has nothing to fear from… civil marriage for same-sex couples,” it says.

That’s a rather more sensible take than the official one from the Church of England.

A consultation on equal marriage is currently being run by the government. Find out how to submit your views here.
