ANGLICAN LEADER SAYS HOMOSEXUAL SEX SAME AS MARITAL SEX IN EYES OF GOD
"According to The Times and The Daily Telegraph, Rowan Williams argued in the letters, written in 2000 and 2001, that biblical prohibitions on homosexuality were targeted at "heterosexuals looking for sexual variety in their experience."
"I concluded that an active sexual relationship between two people of the same sex might therefore reflect the love of God in a way comparable to marriage, if and only if it had about it the same character of absolute covenanted faithfulness," Williams was reported to have written.
The letters were apparently written to Deborah Pitt, a psychiatrist and evangelical Christian, while Williams was still archbishop of Wales.
He was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Church of England and the leader of the world's 77-million-strong Anglican Communion, in 2002.
According to the newspapers, Williams apparently wrote that the church "has shifted its stance on several matters -- notably the rightness of lending money at interest and the moral admissibility of contraception so I am bound to ask if this is another such issue."
Relativism lies at the heart of protestantism as clearly revealed by Williams' statement and over time by the abandonment of all orthodoxy by one protestant denomination after another. Without the rock Protestant Christianity is battered and shaken until it concedes to the world on every sin that man seeks to engage in.
