Church of England Official Suggests Transgender Christians Can Be ‘Re-Christened’ After Undergoing Sex Change

An official of the Church of England suggested that it may allow transgender Christians to be “re-christened” under their new names following a sex change.  The proposal is contained in a discussion paper that outlines those who have undergone a sex change cannot be re-baptized but can announce their new names before God through “services of

welcome” that are already in place, the Daily Mail reported. “It is a fundamental belief of the Church that baptism can only be received once,” Synod Secretary General William Nye said in a statement. “There is therefore no possibility of the Synod approving a form of service for the re-baptism of transgendered persons in their new gender who have already been baptised.” However, Nye also added that there is “no legal or doctrinal difficulty about a baptised transgendered person re-affirming their baptismal vows” under a new name.  READ MORE
