The Guardian editorial on same-sex weddings in the Church of England

The Guardian‘s editorial yesterday (12 January 2022) came out strongly in favour of same-sex weddings in the Church of England, with the headline:

The Church of England should follow the example of Anglicans in Wales and Scotland, and give its blessing to gay and lesbian relationships.

The article is hopeful that real change is now possible, after ‘what the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has described as the “hurt and unnecessary suffering” caused to LGBT+ Christians by a protracted, tortured debate.’

It concludes by saying ‘The gospels convey a message of loving inclusivity; England’s established church should reflect that.‘. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
