Church of England to Meet and Discuss Same-sex Proposals on Wednesday

The Church of England is scheduled to have a five-hour debate later this week to discuss same-sex proposals in marriage and civil organizations. 

The rescinding of a century-old act of parliament to give the Church of England the power to oversee itself is one of the considerations of members of the parliament who are frustrated at the church’s continual refusal to offer marriage equality to same-sex couples.

There is a meeting scheduled to hold at the Church of England later this Wednesday to discuss the issue of blessing same-sex couples, as well as look into the proposals forwarded by the House of Bishops following the living in Love and Faith process, which is the Church’s internal debate on gender identity and sexuality.

Rt Reverend Sarah Mullaly said to the BBC’s Sunday Program;  “There is, probably for the first time in Synod, an opportunity for very detailed group work actually contributing their views both to the prayers as well as the pastoral guidance that we’re producing. “We want to listen to people’s views, and we will take that away.” Before the saying of the general synod, the Bishop of London made it known that the House of Bishops is ready “to listen” to the perspective of the church on same-sex proposals.

Although the synod members can decide and correct the original proposals, the final opinion is on the general amendment agreed upon other than the proposals themselves, and so they cannot be voted down. This process provoked those opposing the changes, as they felt the House of Bishops was underrating the responsibility of the Synod members in taking decisions regarding the same-sex issue.

Also, those soliciting for same-sex marriage are not pleased as they view the proposals as ‘Breadcrumbs’ that will not likely go that far in accepting same-sex relationships.

While at it, the issue of same-sex intimacy was also discussed during the Sunday program and Reverend Sarah responded that the House of Bishops is ‘silent’ and awaiting the discussions on it during the session on Wednesday.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
