It would be thought, it would be, a bitter thing to observe that the church of England refuses to give me any parish post, but on Monday, an elderly nun, a very bright woman, who has clearly since we last talked, had a stroke, laughed at every point in my sermon that was actually funny. I think that showed that both of us were alive. Maybe for a few moments we had "life more abundant" together. The hierarchy would seem to be against this.

  1. That's so wrong, I'd love to see you in a parish post...

  2. It demonstrates the continuing discriminatory attitude that the CofE operates in terms of sexuality. I fail to understand what disqualifies you from parish ministry, when other partnered clergy are prominent in both public and church life? Apart from pure prejudice about your honesty.

  3. Didn't you publicly state last year that you were giving up the Church of England ?

  4. I am so glad that the nun "got" the jokes. I truly am perplexed by the CofE and their cruelty to their gay priests.

  5. My grounds for renouncing the C of E - but not the priesthood, nor Anglicanism - were their hopeless failure to agree to ordain women as bishops. They have now put this right. Maybe there is hope for them.
