Priest Peter Manuel spoke at the Love In Perth mar­riage equal­ity rally in North­bridge this month, and says he can­not wait to marry same-sex cou­ples at his Su­bi­aco church. From the priest’s words “Whether Chris­tians live out be­ing lov­ing is far more im­por­tant to me than whether they are gay or straight.” It’s a pity other Angli­can priests get so hung up on who you love.

- Gre­gory Storer At last, a good and knowl­edge­able priest that un­der­stands and ac­cepts that mar­riage equal­ity is not a re­li­gious If this “priest” can­not hold to Angli­can Church doc­trine, then he should quit and stop pre­tend­ing to be an Angli­can.

- Fair Dinkum My un­der­stand­ing is that there are vary­ing views within the Angli­can Com­mu­nion and this is­sue has been dis­cussed at the Lam­beth Con­fer­ence. Sim­i­lar to women priests. Don’t con­fuse Angli­can­ism with Catholi­cism. There’s no in­fal­li­ble Pope in­volved. - Buddy
