Anglican bishop
says same-sex partnerships supported by Bible

One of 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. London's Daily Telegraph quotes the 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.
