Reign of confusion.

It makes little difference to me, as far as I’m concerned they’re a private members’ club with no importance in my life. However, as they’ve decided to appoint themselves guardians of my moral and spiritual wellbeing, I’ve been trying to get a handle on the latest pronouncement from the Church of England.

Apparently, ‘a decision by the Church of England to allow gay men in civil partnerships to become bishops has prompted criticism from both liberals and traditionalists.‘ No doubt the wonderfully mediaeval laity will have something to say about this, but nevertheless, as far as I can make out, the following applies:

If you are a heterosexual male you can get married in their clubhouse, you can conduct the wedding and you can be the boss of the person conducting the wedding.

If you are a heterosexual female you can get married in their clubhouse, you can conduct the wedding, but you cannot be the boss of the person conducting the wedding.

If you are a homosexual male, you cannot get married in their clubhouse, but you can conduct the wedding and you can be the boss of the person of the person conducting the wedding.

If you are homosexual female, you cannot get married in their clubhouse, but you can conduct the wedding, however you cannot be the boss of the person conducting the wedding.

It’s all a bit screwed up, isn’t it?

If you are bi-sexual post-op transgenderist, you’ll probably cause a huge rift in the fabric of the religious/ethical continuum.

So, in summary, if there any bi-sexual, post-op transgenderists reading this, please apply to join the clerics in the CofE, just for a giggle. I’d love to see them tie themselves up in knots over that one.
