A new report from Christian Today is indicating that a Church of England clergyman who married his gay partner is to publish an open letter signed by at least 12 married clergy couples calling on bishops to relax the rules against gay marriage.  The Rev Andrew Foreshew-Cain, who married his partner Stephen last year and who was also elected to the

General Synod, the Church’s governing body, on a liberal pro-gay ticket, is still finalising the text of the letter which he hopes will ultimately help the Church move towards full equality for LGBT people. He told Christian Today that about half the signatories are happy to be named because they have already gone public about their marriages. There will be a second category of “anonymous” signatories from gay clergy who might have told their bishops they are married but whose bishops are keeping this information private. CONTINUE
