A letter to the Telegraph, 12.12.02

Dear Editor, For generations the Anglican clergy of this country have conducted the marriages of divorcees, against the expressed wishes of Synods and bishops. They did so for pastoral reasons, and within the law, as civil registrars. What possesses the government to think that ministers of "the established church" should be exempt from the same liberty when the law changes to allow same-sex couples to be legally married? Forget the Synods and the bishops; the clergy know their people, and they should be trusted to do what is right. Yours sincerely,
