Comments: civil partnerships: changes to church law

Nothing unusual here. The CofE is an established church, and it isn't in the business of defying the law made by Parliament.

I don't know what everyone is afraid of. No one is suggesting that the CofE be forced into anything. I also think it is about time the CofE looked to change its outdated ideas on a number of issues. Unless we still intend to take all of the bible litterally. In which case I'm off to chuck my cockles in the bin.

Er...no, Martin. We elected our Government. And the civil partnership Bill had the support of all three major party leaders.

It is not for the Church to defy democratic government. Thats not the way we work here.
