Church of England should be made to allow gay clergy to marry - bishop

From The Telegraph-

The Church of England should be forced to drop its ban on gay clergy marrying their partners, a bishop has said.

The Rt Rev Alan Wilson, the Bishop of Buckingham, urged politicians to intervene to end what he said was a “manifest injustice” against clerics who he said had suffered “harassment and victimisation”.

He raised the issue with the Nick Clegg during a question and answer session with the website PinkNews.

The Deputy Prime Minister said it was not for him to “tell the Church what they can or cannot do” but added that he hoped “tolerance will eventually win the day”.
