The Bible says...

"Homosexuality is a sin. The Bible tells us that." That is a reaction I get often if I talk of LGBT issues, especially of late when I've said quite clearly that my position has changed somewhat, and now is the time for our wee church to take a stand, and provide liturgies for same-sex blessings that bishops can attend. Now is the time for us to say that we will consecrate an openly gay man or woman to be a bishop if we feel that is what the Holy Spirit is telling us we should do, and that person has been called by God to be a bishop.

“The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.”
Lynn Lavner

“They are preserving the sanctity of marriage, so that two gay men who've been together for twenty-five years can't get married, but a guy can still get drunk in Vegas and marry a hooker at the Elvis chapel! The sanctity of marriage is saved!”
Lea DeLaria

“Homosexuality is god's way of insuring that the truly gifted aren't burdened with children.”
Sam Austin

“I always say that as a Christian I cannot find any passage in the Gospels in which Jesus condemned homosexuality.”

Pleasure to make your online acquaintance Rev. Macaulay!

I lived in Edinburgh for two splendid years so it's a joy to share a passing word with a Scot - and clergy at that!
