From The Telegraph-
Gay couples who get married will be able to ask for special prayers in the Church of England after their wedding, the bishops have agreed.
But priests who are themselves in same-sex relationships or even civil partnerships will be banned from getting married when it becomes legally possible next month.
The blanket prohibition opens up the prospect of an embarrassing rebellion from gay and lesbian clergy who choose to tie the knot.
It would force local bishops to bring lengthy disciplinary measures to effectively have them defrocked for getting married.
It is understood the Church is already bracing itself for “martyrs” prepared to challenge the rules.
