Bishops vote for 'gay marriage'
26 November 2004

Andrew Carey, Church of England Newspaper


Eight Bishops voted last week for the government's civil partnership bill, which critics claim amounts to the legalisation of gay marriage.

The Bill will now pass into the law with the support of the majority of the Bishops of the Church of England who were present at the debate in the House of Lords against the will of only two bishops, Chester and Southwell.

The Bishops who voted in favour of civil partnerships were the Bishop of Chelmsford, Manchester, Norwich, Oxford, Peterborough, St Albans, St Edmundsbury and Ipswich and Truro.
