Fiona Bennett, minister of Augustine United Reform Church (Protestant) in Edinburgh, told ENInews: “We’re delighted. It’s been some time coming.” She described her church as an inclusive one, friendly to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual community in Scotland .Sturgeon promised religious organizations that oppose homosexual weddings the Scottish Government will bring forward no legislation impinging on an individual’s freedom of speech or freedom to practice or preach religion.“The Scottish Government,” she said, “will take all necessary steps to protect churches and individuals within those churches who do not wish to conduct same sex weddings if they do not agree with them.”A spokesman for the Roman Catholic Church said: “The Scottish Government is embarking on a dangerous social experiment on a massive scale.”The Rev. Rod Thomas, chairman of Reform (a conservative evangelical network within the Church of England), said in a texted statement: “God designed marriage to be the union of one man and one woman, reflecting the union of Christ as bridegroom and the Church his bride. God is not a person with whom even U.K. prime ministers can negotiate a more congenial set of commands.”The announcement came as U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron hosted a meeting of prominent gay leaders at his London home, 10 Downing Street.“I am absolutely determined that this coalition government will follow in that tradition by legalizing gay marriage in this Parliament,” he said.“The prime minister’s sneering remarks show his own intolerance of religious people who disagree with him on gay marriage,” said Mike Judge of the Christian Institute. “It is incredibly arrogant of him to tell churches what religious beliefs they should and shouldn’t hold. No wonder huge swathes of churchgoers are suspicious of his motives.” Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Albany, NY Rector Collierville, TN Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Press Release Service Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Martinsville, VA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Featured Events Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Tampa, FL Rector Shreveport, LAlast_img read more
