Theological challenge to solely Binary Marriage

In this latest offering from C. o E. General Synod member Jayne Ozanne’s FaceBook page we have a theological contribution from an English cleric, whose rationale for a covenanted Same Sex relationshi akin to Marriage is quite compelling. I note just one instance of this theory: When Scripture describes the whole human family in the Church – both female and male – as ‘The Bride of Christ’ – a reference to the fact that, as Saint Paul tells us: “In Christ, there is neither male nor female….” Also, there are special same-sex relationships in the Bible that most people are familiar with that need to be taken into account when discussing such matters as marital covenants.
