A 17-year-old American girl openly declared that she is gay. She took her girlfriend to the school prom. Her parents summarily enrolled her into a Christian school where she would for a year not have any contact with the outside world. The school apparently is known for “praying the gay away”.
This happened in the year 2017, not in 1317, and in the USA, not some backwater country with a paternalistic, dictatorial belief system.
The girl’s parents sent her to the school so that they could ensure the daughter they were given in this life is “changed”. Talk about conditional love … And they could do this because legally she is still under age and there is nothing she can do to get out of this “school”.
One of the main questions that the Church of England seems to be grappling with – or at least those questions that got the headlines – are around whether women and gay men are good enough in the eyes of God to become bishops.
