Stop the regulations or the dog gets it!

Apparently the Bishop of Rochester and various other members of the clergy have been issuing dire threats that projects will be closed and "It will be the poor and disadvantaged who will be the losers" if churches have to comply with regulations to prevent discrimination against gay people. Bookdrunk has more on this Daily Mail spectacular.

(Whatever happened, by the way, to the CofE's guidance, 'Some Issues in Human Sexuality', which encouraged churchgoers to consider whether an "unhealthy" obsession with sex prevented them from focussing on "...commercial greed, poverty and inequalities of wealth"?)

As one of the commenters on the Daily Mail article says: "I feel angst for all the gay teenagers whose parents are committed Christians knowing that equality in relationships will be denied them. Equality IS Love."
