  1. “I think we have to make some space so that others can make that journey as well.”Generous words from the bishop, and she may well be right. But what we must NOT do is allow those ‘others’ of whom she speaks to drag us all back 50 years into the darkness of their bigotry, hate and viciousness. And we can see in their triumphalist reaction to any small ‘vistory’ they win that *that* is what they really want – to make the whole church as brutal and benighted as they currently are.Allowing them ‘space’ to change is one thing. Allowing them, through timidity and quelulous inaction, to define the whole church’s attitude to the GLBT community for the next 50 years is quite another.
