Church of Ireland: We may allow gay unions

Saturday, 5 July 2008

The head of the Church of Ireland has said if homosexuality is proven to be biologically predetermined then his church would have to allow gay unions.

"If such comes to be shown, it will be necessary to acknowledge the full implications of that new aspect of the truth," said Archbishop Alan Harper...

...Mr Harper also said it was important to distinguish parts of the Bible that were considered the direct word of God and other elements that were human interpretations of his teachings in the context of the time.

"Rulings that may have applied and been deemed valid at one time and in one specific circumstance need not necessarily retain that applicability and validity at another," he said. the rest image

typical of Abp Harper - liberal agenda that he pushed for years in Connor diocese, which was opposed by many of his clergy, and now at Armagh. so much for his call for his clergy to 'listen.' i beleive he has seriously underestimated the number of clergy and parishes within the CofI who are against such an unorthodox and unbiblical move as the acceptance and blessing of the sin of homosexuality.
