Gay Bishop in (Anglican) Church of England

They believe Dr Jeffrey John, current Dean of St Albans may be appointed as the first openly and active homosexual Anglican bishop in the United Kingdom. Dr John has a civil partner and has previously described himself as being in an active homosexual relationship. Seven years ago he was appointed as the bishop of Reading but withdraw on account of protests.

Conservative Anglicans are up in arms. My suspicion is that Dr. John will receive his appointment.

    Your description of Dr John is misleading.

    The civil partnership you mention is  a chaste one.  He is not currently an “active” homosexual.  It is, however, true that he once was, and has never repented of that period of his life.

    Latest new is that he has been rejected as a candidate for the see of Southwark.
