Comments: New statement on Civil Partnerships from the Scottish College of Bishops

The Scottish Episcopal Church would appear to be much more in touch with society in Scotland on the issue of Same-Sex Blessings than the Church of England - especially when we consider the actual influence of the Pilling Report on the legislative potential regarding such matters in the Church of England. At least, in Scotland, it is possible already for a monogamous Same-Sex Couple to receive a Blessing in Church. This is not yet the case in the C. of E. And there may be a long time of waiting before such a pastoral initiative can be officially sanctioned.
