General Synod has voted to reject the bishops' sexuality report after a move to vote by Houses.
The fact that the House of Clergy voted 93 in favour and 100 against with 2 abstentions and less than two thirds majority in the House of Laity indicates the situation in which the Church of England now finds herself after so much appeasement.
It was clear that the gay lobby would accept nothing less than capitulation. Endless sob stories and references to 'moving forward' as the Church had done with the admission of women to the Episcopate made it clear that the LGBT+ lobby is on a journey, not to travel hopefully, but to arrive.
The 'silent middle', the stepping-stone of blessing gay patrnerships, was the tear-jerker of the day moving the bishops to apologise yet again. Apologise for what? The Christian faith?
The Church should stop apologising for upholding the faith of Christ crucified before there is nothing left to defend.
The gays have it, or do they?
Lies, Damn Lies and Synodics - What exactly did Synod not vote for last night?
Listen to the Rev Peter Ould HERE. Excellent.
