The Scottish Episcopal Church has taken a major step towards letting same-sex couples marry in church. However the process of change will take at least two years. If and when final approval is given, priests will be allowed – but not required – to celebrate weddings between same-sex partners.
Tony Campolo, an influential Christian speaker and writer, no longer regards same-sex partnerships as wrong. Several other well-known evangelicals in recent years have also changed their views on sexual ethics.
