The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, has apologised “unreservedly” to same-sex couples prejudiced by the Church.
A tweet sent from the Church’s account yesterday reads:
“Archbishop of Wales offers a pastoral letter on same sex relationships #govbody apologising unreservedly for prejudice within the church.”
In 2015 Dr Morgan commented that bringing forward a bill on same-sex marriage in the Church would be “foolish”.
A statement from the Church, detailing the contents of the pastoral letter, explains that although it was not ready to “allow or bless same-sex marriage, the debate is not over.”
The letter also explains that the Bishops of the Church recognise that “gay and lesbian people are ‘fully affirmed as equal disciples’.”
