A Long And Slow Path To Church Approval

“Many Christians hold that the bible teaches that same sex sexual relationships and changing gender identity are contrary to God's plan for humanity."
- Reverend Jonathan Coore

Society as a whole has become more tolerant of the LGBT community. A good albeit unexpected example of that is the world’s reaction to Olympic Gold medallist Bruce Jenner public announcement that he was becoming a woman.

In the UK, homophobia is also far less of a trouble than it was a decade or so ago.

However, same-sex marriage is still an issue. Yes, gays and lesbians living in Britain have been able to unite themselves before the town hall, but the Church of England still doesn’t recognize their union.
