Following in the footsteps of the diocese of St Asaph with their LGBTQIA+ Chaplaincy, the diocese of Bangor has launched its own LBGT+ Chaplaincy for people who consider themselves to be members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Asexual community.
Its Chaplain the Rev’d Dominic McClean said, "In an ideal world a Chaplaincy such as this would not be necessary. But the LGBT+ Christian community is one that needs affirming within our Church. So this Chaplaincy will offer a safe and sacred place where LGBT+ people can be themselves as they worship and express their love for God and Jesus".
What world do these people live in? The joke in Llandaff is that a straight chaplaincy is needed!
The only minority in the Church in Wales who cannot be themselves as they worship and express their love for God and Jesus are those who in conscience follow the traditional teaching of the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.
Still no safe and sacred place for them.
