    Quakers back gay marriage and call for reform

    The Quakers sanctioned gay marriages yesterday and called on the Government to give same-sex couples who marry in their ceremonies the same standing as heterosexual people.

    Other Christian churches and religious denominations have approved blessings for same-sex civil partnerships but the Quakers are Britainís first mainstream religious group to approve marriages for homosexuals.

    It is a decision that will be welcomed by gay and lesbian Christian groups worldwide as a breakthrough in what they regard as a campaign for justice and equality.

    Indeed

    The Anglican Church (COE in particular) looks like it is being torn apart by this issue of homosexuality in the church. From Ministers to marriage. There are fractions who are more modern and others who are traditional.
