Male priests marry in Anglican church's first gay 'wedding'


www.telegraph.co.uk

An Anglican church has held a homosexual "wedding" for the first time in a move that will deepen the rift between liberals and traditionalists, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.
Two male priests exchanged vows and rings in a ceremony that was conducted using one of the church's most traditional wedding rites – a decision seen as blasphemous by conservatives.

The ceremony broke Church of England guidelines and was carried out last month in defiance of the Bishop of London, in whose diocese it took place. News of the "wedding" emerged days before a crucial summit of the Anglican Church's conservative bishops and archbishops, who are threatening to split the worldwide Church over the issue of homosexual clergy.

In my own mind, I don't see the fact that they are priests as even factoring into the equation, but then again I am not a religious person. I imagine that this is going to be a very hot topic among the religious. I'm curious to know how some of our more religious members view this.
