Under consideration: The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said the Church will now consider the recommendations.
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York yesterday published the Report of the House of Bishops Working Group on Human S3xuality.
And according to it, gay couples should be allowed to have their relationships blessed in church.
DailyMail reports that the report, written by former civil servant Sir Joseph Pilling and a team of senior churchmen and women, was published seven months after the Church first indicated it is looking at ‘accommodations’ for same-s3x couples and four months after the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, told Church leaders that ‘we must accept there is a revolution in the area of s3xuality’.

It signals an end to the Church’s longstanding insistence that gay relationships are sinful and less worthy than heteros3xual marriage.
And may now open the way for a reversal of the CofE’s opposition to same-s3x marriage and the eventual appointment of actively homos3xual priests and bishops.
Archbishop Welby said yesterday that bishops will now ‘consider the report and decide how such a process might best be shaped’.
The world is really coming to an end… God save us!
