Church of England Now Recognises Same Sex Marriage
After eight hours of debate concerning the recognition of same sex marriage in church, the Church of England has now endorsed plans to let priests bless gay couples in historic move.
The Church of England voted in favour of a motion to offer blessings to same-sex couples in civil partnerships and marriages yesterday.
The decision came after a marathon emotional near-eight hour debate across two days ended in a vote for the motion - which did not seek to change the position on gay marriage, meaning same-sex couples are still unable to marry in church.
But this approval is a landmark moment for LGBT issues within the Church, which have set deep divides amongst the Anglican congregation for four decades.
Same-sex couples may now attend Anglican churches after a legal marriage ceremony for services including prayers of dedication, thanksgiving and God's blessing.
