Unfair??

A number of MPs responded to the crisis, calling the Church’s stance on gay marriage “untenable,” “unfair,” and “hard to justify,” according to Christian Today.

It seems that those MPs have a very different definition f the word ‘unfair’ than the rest of the world. How is it unfair to make people who want to be part of the church, follow the rules of the church and by extension the God they claim to serve? One would think that, by any normal definition of the term, it would be unfair to those who follow the rules to allow rulebreakers in without discipline, correction and a warning to follow the rules.

“Is it not increasingly untenable for our Church, which enjoys significant privileges in this country because of its established status, to continue to discriminate against its own members simply because they happen to be gay?” asked Ben Bradshaw, Labour MP for Exeter who is himself in a gay relationship and belongs to the Anglican Church

Making people follow the rules is NOT discrimination but telling people that there is a line between good and evil and that line should not be crossed. What good is having rules if no one abides by them or are told to abide by them?

Dame Caroline Spelman, Second Church Estates Commissioner, added that “Changes have taken place and more need to happen.”

The changes that need to be made are that churches should get back to the word of God and not alter it because some people want to practice and bring evil into the church.
