With H/T to Anglican Curmudgeon we fly this morning to Norway - neutral marriage law since 2008- where the national church has agreed at its latest General Synod to its stance on marriage:
According to this report, the GS votes mean the Norwegian church is:
NOT in favour of same sex couples marrying in a religious ceremony
NOT keen on, in fact rejected "A proposal for a prayer recognizing two equal theological views on same sex marriage and giving the church’s blessing to same sex couples after they married in a civil ceremony".
NOT keen on, in fact shut down also "A plan to introduce a prayer, without acknowledging two equal views"
so, obviously, this church is committed to the status quo that marriage is between one man and one woman ... don't be silly because the General Synod is also
NOT in favour of the status quo that marriage is between one man and one woman.
"It meant there was no clear statement from the Kirkemøtet on Tuesday on the church’s gay marriage stance."
Explanation's of this curious set of votes welcomed in the comments ... it is beyond your blogger with his very small brain :)
