Sex is for married heterosexual couples only, says Church of England

To which one wag replied,

As always, your mileage may vary and objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

But honestly, with church attendance dropping globally, leave it to the Theocrats to find a way to drive away parishioners faster and more efficiently. Good show, old bean!

And in more good news: Utah(!) has become the 19th state to ban conversion therapy for LGBTQ children.

    The Mormons stopped trying to convert LGBTQ kids, but they are still converting deceased Jews.

    A little dated but it seems that some Mormons are fed up with the church. According to Lewis Black.

    I never would have guessed the church of England would promote the swinger lifestyle.

    Religious traditionalists / fundies have been ranting for years that the reason people are abandoning religion in droves is that the churches are bending too much to adapt to the times, and no longer offer the strict standards people supposedly want. It’s nonsense, of course, but maybe the Church of England decided to give the idea a try.

    On the other hand, the “C of E” has never been as liberal as people seem to believe. They opposed gay marriage when it was legalized in the UK, and supported the Islamists in the Danish cartoon conflict.

    Remember, this is a religious sect whose whole basis for existing is that Henry VIII wanted to divorce Catherine of Aragon and the Pope wouldn’t let him. That was the entire reason for splitting off the church within England into a separate entity. The whole thing is ridiculous.

    after centuries of kings taking mistresses they finally decided to say something? but good point, they didn’t say they had to be married to each other.

    If the thumpers and the perverts are driving people from churches, I’m OK with that. Let’s tax whatever’s left.
