Abstract

What precisely is the issue before us? On this we need to be clear in order to focus our deliberations on the primary issue, from which many other secondary issues—such as the question of the blessing of same-sex marriages—take their bearings. I wish to pose it as clearly as possible: does God approve, bless, and delight in samesex marriage, or does God condemn, reject, and judge it sinful? For if God judges it sinful, there is no Christian blessing nor Anglican liturgical consideration possible. But if the heart of God rejoices in same-sex marriage wholeheartedly, then blessing and liturgical recognition of such will follow as night follows day.
