I was glad to have the opportunity of writing this article for the Herald yesterday.
I think it is important to try and explain why it is that churches have difficulty with this issue. It’s partly straightforward divergence of view. But it’s also because we have sustained our traditional teaching on marriage to some extent on behalf of society. We are now in a time of significant change – we are in part recognising changes which have already happened all around us.
But we need to make a case for change – and this article begins to set out for a wider readership how we do that.
