The Bishop of Liverpool says he is “in sympathy” with a move to allow religious same-sex partnerships. James Jones, a leading evangelical, seems to be undergoing a shift in his own views on sexuality over the past two years.
Oxford politics Professor Iain McLean wrote an open letter to the Anglican Bishop of Winchester, Michael Scott-Joynt, about civil partnerships on religious premises, after the bishop opposed such a development. The bishop responded personally. This is McLean's further reply, following the House of Lords vote on an amendment to the Equality Bill on the issue.
