Now, I have to put this in my own words, but as far as I can understand it, the Church of Wales has recently been bumping it's gums over the knotty issue of gay marriage.
Over the entire country the Welsh Church dioceses have been " consulting" with their Deaneries, Parishes and with individuals and Bishop Gregory, (who looks a bit like Richard Griffith from the Harry Potter movies) has given his report on the findings from this area.
It makes for an interesting and rather ambiguous read.
As far as I can see, the Welsh Church is banging on whether to accept gay marriage or not. Ok it has put out feelers towards the patronising and second class offer to bless civil ceremonies in Church ( that's big of them! ) but the general thrust of the discussion is centred around the whole concept of "marriage"
The Bishop recieved two Deanery responses, ten Parish responses and only 15 personal responses and although his exploration of this feedback looked remarkable thorough, I think he and the Church in Wales has missed the point.
GAY MARRIAGE is now the LAW OF THE LAND...plain and simple....and in law I am now a married person.....I have the paperwork , just like any other married person to prove it. The Church HAS to change if it is to survive. If a popular Bishop recieves just fifteen personal responses to this debate , doesn't that tell him something?
Most people are just not arsed with the whole thing....bleeding hell you would get more resonse about changing the colour of the rubbish bins than you would about the Church allowing two poofs to kiss down the aisle......apathy is a big leveller
So Bishop Gregory get real eh?.....Change with the times me old son.......you now use facebook and twitter and you seem like a pretty likable old guy......time to move on to worry about bigger things eh?
Gay is sooooo last season anyway
