Britain's most senior bishops has reignited the
Church of England row over homosexuality by claiming
that same-sex partnerships are supported by the Bible.
Right Reverend Richard Harries, the Bishop of Oxford,
as saying that traditionalists in the church need to be
"converted" to see that gay and lesbian unions are
confirmed by the scriptures.
He also reaffirmed his controversial belief that
an openly gay man should be allowed to be appointed a bishop.
His remarks have angered traditionalists and are
set to rekindle the debate on same-sex marriage, which
has left the church's House of Bishops deeply divided
following the introduction of the Civil Partnership Act
last year. (Sirius OutQ News)
