Dr Barry Morgan: Church gay marriage view ‘must change’ – BBC News

The Archbishop of Wales has said the Church’s view on same-sex marriage must change with popular opinion.

Earlier this year, Dr Morgan authorised prayers which can be said with same-sex couples following a celebration.

He said he and his fellow bishops were accused of “ignoring Holy Scripture” by issuing the prayers.

In his final address as president of the Church’s governing body before retiring, Dr Morgan said the Bible had more than one view on homosexuality.

Speaking at University of Trinity Saint David in Lampeter, Ceredigion, Dr Morgan responded to claims that he and his fellow bishops had been “swayed by the liberal culture of our age”.

He compared biblical interpretations of same-sex relationships with those of slavery.
