A few weeks ago a member of my little flock said to me:
“But why do they want marriage? They have civil partnerships. Is that not enough?”
“Where did you get married?” I asked.
“We got married in St ********”
“Why did you choose to get married there?”
“Because we were members there. That’s the church we went to… Oh. I see.”
And that is why we are holding an evening to discuss such matters on Wednesday 17 July at 7.30pm at Christ Church. One of the things we might do is watch the new video by the Equality Network which was launched last night. You can link there or here below.
You will see lots of famous Scottish faces. And you might see some not-so-famous too. You may even see some clergy and that was what made my heart soar. Clergy with dog collars saying “It’s Time.” Not clergy ranting and pointing at some verses in Leviticus. Clergy with a positive message instead of an exclusive one.
And haven’t they got good teeth?
