Sex­ual re­la­tions

The Church of England - - LETTERS -

Sir, What a pe­cu­liar ques­tion is raised by Ge­orge Pitcher in “twit­ter your tweets”. A sex­ual re­la­tion­ship be­tween a mar­ried man and woman (bishop or oth­er­wise) is a nat­u­ral state of af­fairs af­firmed by Almighty God. Sex­ual re­la­tions be­tween peo­ple of the same sex are not.

Such ac­tiv­ity is ob­vi­ously bi­o­log­i­cally un­nat­u­ral and those Chris­tians suf­fer­ing from same sex at­trac­tion need hon­est pas­toral coun­selling to help and guide them to com­bat th­ese feel­ings and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Those “pro­fes­sional” church peo­ple who pro­mote and af­firm ho­mo­sex­ual ac­tiv­ity us­ing the ex­cuse of “lov­ing re­la­tion­ships” are de­stroy­ing the author­ity and clear guid­ance of God in the writ­ten Word and will bear a ter­ri­ble re­spon­si­bil­ity at the fi­nal judge­ment.

But I guess they have prob­a­bly trashed that Scrip­tural teach­ing as well. Alan Minchin, Strat­ford upon Avon
