A different outlook

From the Revd Martin Culverwell

Sir, - After the Church of England Bishops' instructions on gay marriage were issued, I received an email from a friend of mine in the Episcopal Church in the United States: "The official view here is that the Episcopal Church believes in marriage and frowns on promiscuity. For this reason gay clergy in states where gay marriage is legal are being ORDERED by their bishops to get married or stop living together, just as heterosexuals would be." Food for thought?
