Should this be surprising? Look what the head of the official religion of the British Empire has to say about homosexuality. His name is Rowan Williams, the current Archbishop of Canterbury and clerical head of the Church of England (Anglican).

Rowan Williams believes that gay sexual relationships can “reflect the love of God” in a way that is comparable to marriage, The Times has learnt.

Dr Williams is known to be personally liberal on the issue but the strength of his views, revealed in private correspondence shown to The Times, will astonish his critics.

he described his belief that biblical passages criticising homosexual sex were not aimed at people who were gay by nature.

The article goes on to quote a former Archbishop of Canterbury, Runcie, as stating that homosexuality needs to be looked at as a handicap.
