I see that one of the UK’s oldest Christian denominations – the Quakers – looks set to extend marriage services to same-sex couples at their yearly meeting later.
The church has already held religious blessings for same-sex couples who have had a civil partnership ceremony.
But agreeing to perform gay marriages, which are currently not allowed under civil law, could bring the Quakers into conflict with the government.
The issue of active homosexuality has bitterly divided other churches. But the BBC’s religious affairs correspondent Robert Pigott said the Quakers had been more prepared than other churches to reinterpret the Bible in the light of contemporary life.
Sad to see the Quakers become so thoroughly apostate. I suppose the main danger here is that if they become the first “Christian” Church to argue for actual “gay marriage” then this could be used to establish a legal precedent so that ALL churches could have an obligation under Human Rights legislation to perform this freak show.
There are three key points here;
1. The state of marriage is the union between one man and one woman.
2. Accepting that homosexuals can marry each other undermines the sanctity of point one and is degenerate.
3. The trouble for the Quakers and all other liberal “Christians” is that the word of God is not up for reinterpretation. The Bible is clear that the act of homosexuality is sinful. By institutionalising this in a marriage service, the Quakers show themselves up to be whited sepulchres.
