Vicars are revolting!

Nearly a dozen ministers within the Church of England are to reveal that they are gay and have married their same-sex partners despite the Church’s opposition to gay marriage.

A letter in the Guardian will ask for permission from the Church to carry out blessings for people entering gay marriages.

“Our marriages are legal, celebrated and widely accepted in society,” said Andrew Foreshew-Cain, one of the first priests to defy the Church’s ban on gay marriage. “Yet the Church of England behaves as if they are somehow dirty and imposes penalties on clergy and refuses to acknowledge the marriages of those who wish to make lifelong faithful commitments.”
