March 27 2014 By virtueonline A third of Church of England bishops are gay, priest claims

But as reported by the Daily Beast, an anonymous clergyman has revealed that homosexuality may be more prevalent in the church than some may think.

They write: ‘A clergyman, who did not wish to be named, claimed that at least 13 of the church’s 42 bishops were also gay, although they have not publicly acknowledged it.’

There are 42 bishops in the Church of England, who have a diocese and can vote in the House of Lords.

None of them are openly gay.

March 22 2014 By virtueonline UK: Biblical Ignorance of Anglican Politicians is no Laughing Matter

Positive male and female role models are very important in local communities but as an argument for the ordination of women, or indeed men, Mrs Spelman's apologia for women priests displays a lamentable level of biblical literacy. The primary calling of ordained ministers in the Church of England is to proclaim the Word of God, not to spend their time trying to compensate for societal breakdown.

March 21 2014 By virtueonline UK: First priest to defy Church ban on gay marriage for clergy

The decision was applauded by traditionalists and several primates overseas but infuriated liberals in the Church.

March 12 2014 By virtueonline CHURCH OF ENGLAND: Gay Marriage and the Church's Response

The changes have been rapidly accepted: importantly by people with power and influence, and then filtering down to the general population.

February 25 2014 By virtueonline CHURCH OF ENGLAND: Listen to Those Turbulent Priests

There is not one corner or acre of this country that the church does not cover. Wherever you live you are in someone's parish, and are someone's responsibility, even if you have no faith. And if you need help, you can count on the church to at least do something.
