'unforeseen'....like, you can't think of any, Rev Mellor. What does it matter? It doesn't denigrate conventional marriage or those person's relationship with whatever they perceive to be 'god' in any way whatsoever, and if 'god' is that bothered about it, I'm guessing he'll make his feelings on that subject pretty clear, so doesn't need you to be his self appointed mouthpiece. i seem to remember similar arguments when they first grudgingly agreed female clergy. Where's are the alleged potential problems with that, then? Yet to hear of any... With dwindling numbers attending church I would have thought the clergy would be keen to encourage people, not alienate them and make them feel less worthy because of their sexuality.... and as for that subject, perhaps the church should tread very carefully when it comes to taking the moral high ground.
