Check out this article from the Press Association about the Archbishop of Canterbury’s liberal views on homosexuality.
The Archbishop of Canterbury has said, and I’m quoting from the article, ‘I concluded that an active sexual relationship between two people of the same sex might therefore reflect the love of God in a way comparable to marriage, if and only if it had about it the same character of absolute covenanted faithfulness.’
I support gay rights adamantly. As long as everyone involved in the relationship is in consent, I don’t care who or what is involved. That last phrase is what feels somewhat odd to me: ‘If and only if it had about it the same character of absolutely covenanted faithfulness.’ It’s like he’s willing to assert that homosexuality isn’t the downfall of religion and marriage, but it’s still not quite equal to heterosexuality. This is absolutely a button issue for me, so I might just be acting defensively when there’s actually nothing to it.

Completely off subject– isn’t that a simply lovely picture? The demonic eyebrows are *not* helping Dr Williams in expressing his controversial beliefs. 🙂
