“Christians who oppose gay marriage on the wrong side of history” – Richard Holloway

Former Primus, Richard Holloway has said that church leaders who oppose same-sex marriage will eventually be shown to be on the wrong side of history, former Bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway.

He said churches had, however slowly, changed their minds on issues such as slavery and the status of women.

He said: “The same will happen in the campaign for gay equality in religious institutions.

“It will be resisted, as the liberation of women was, and is still being, resisted, and many of the same arguments will be marshalled against it, but it will prevail.

“Whatever they say, Christians who oppose gay marriage will, in time, be shown to be on the wrong side of history.”

Bishop Richard was among a group of religious leaders who gave their public backing to opening marriage to same-sex couples.

Civil Partnership and Marriage Consultation

Changing Attitude Scotland warmly welcomes the consultation document on the Registration of Civil Partnerships and Same Sex Marriage that has been published by the Scottish Government.

The document is available here.

Changing Attitude Scotland believes that same-sex couples who wish to enter into marriage should be able to do so in the churches of the Scottish Episcopal Church and that those who are currently able to officiate at weddings should be able to conduct marriage ceremonies for such couples.

Further resources will be published on this site in relation to this consultation, in due course. The consultation is open until 9 December 2011.
