Vicar fears gay marriage change could cause society disintegration

From The BBC-

A Jersey vicar has said society could begin to disintegrate if the traditional view of marriage was lost.

The Reverend Canon Dr Gavin Ashenden, Vicar of Gouray, was responding to the appointment of the Bishop of Grantham, who is gay and in a relationship.

Dr Ashenden said it was marriage between a man and a woman that held society together.
"Anglican Christians look to the bible and tradition and say 'we do what we do because God tells us to'," he said.

He said he found it hard to respect Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby's decision to appoint Dr Chamberlain when he knew he was gay and said he thought his sexuality was "irrelevant".
