I am grateful for Michael’s detailed study of the BCP and more broadly on our Constitution and formularies. With respect to his ‘commentary’ on the ‘the doctrine of marriage arising from the BCP’, I am in broad agreement with all of his points except point 5, where Michael proposes that the endorsement of heterosexual marriage in the BCP entails the rejection of same-sex marriage. Michael’s argument can thus be stated in this way: the BCP endorses heterosexual marriage only.
