Anglican Bishop says Church of Ireland can never accept gay relationships (Christian Today)

PROFOUNDLY DISTURBING: Jennifer Gold writes in Christian Today

One of the foremost evangelical bishops in the Church of Ireland, Bishop Harold Miller, says that the Church can never support homosexual relationships, even if science later proves them to be “natural”.

Speaking in an interview with Northern Irish publication News Letter this week, Bishop Miller said that the head of the Church of Ireland, Archbishop Alan Harper, had been wrong to assert that the Church may have to re-think its position on same-sex relationships if science proves that homosexuality is “natural” for some men and women.

“If you say that because you are born with a certain inclination then it is God-given and you should be free to follow that through in your life, it doesn’t make any logical sense whatever,” Bishop told the newspaper.

“You would then have to say that there are many different inclinations with which people are born — even if it is true that this is an inherent thing — and which people spend their lifetime trying to subdue.
