"Archbishop Barry said that within a
local congregation, homosexual
people often feel uncomfortable and
unwelcome. 'If the moral aim of the
gospel is to encourage love of
neighbour, how can that happen
when people are made to feel
unwanted, unloved, and sinful? How
is the gospel good news for
That is absolute rubbish. The gospel has been good news for two thousand years before Bazzer and his chums put their spin on it to reflect current trends in society. The only minority to feel unwanted, unloved and even made to feel sinful in the Church in Wales is the group of loyal Anglicans whose faith remains God centred rather than man centred. Homosexual people have been accepted for years without wanting to be married, a social trend which, like the ordination of women, has split the Church and accelerated decline in attendance.
The irony appears lost on these people that in striving to achieve their secular objectives they are destroying the very institution that they want to use.
I had dared to hope that the Llandaff Diocesan Conference (here) would have been more uplifting with the benefit of hindsight. But no, just something to match the new-found forms of kiddies worship in the Church in Wales. The delegates played snakes and ladders. How to slither to the top no doubt!
