Finally some sense from someone in Northern Ireland. Thank you Canon Charles Kenny.
IT never ceases to amaze when we get support from the unlikeliest of places.
Thank you Canon Kenny.
Canon Kenny is a kind and compassionate man who campaigned against sectarianism for many years, and now in later life works hard to oppose homophobia, including within the church.
Sad that so many others seem determined to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Why is this news.
Religious cults have no place in getting involved in discussing LGBT civil rights.
Stop giving these useless cults the idea that their opinion is relevant in any way.
That view is incompatible with democracy.
How True !
There are many good people in the church. Its time to get them “out”, just as its time to get all the gays out of the closet
its hard to hate people you know and respect.
Soon only the tyrants of Rome will stand alone.
Until they join their catholic bretheren like Hitlr, Mengele, Goebbels, Eichmann and Himmler.
It looks like that Northern Ireland is becoming a nicer place to live. The Church of Ireland is related to the Church of England as part of the Anglican Communion. The CofI, Prestyberian Church and the Catholic Church each represent about a third ot the population of Northern Ireland and while the CofI are loyal to the UK, they are not as hardline as the Prestyberians.
Au Contraire, Gingerly. religion holds very little sway in the north of Ireland much the same as in the rest of Ireland. Church attendance in Ireland north or south has declined drastically and nowadays the figures are roughly 27% and the majority of those are the very elderly. Few people under 65 attend these charades anymore especially since the paedo scandals which have sullied all shades of religious cult in Ireland……..
Never met him, but I like Charles Kenny. I particularly like his comments in relation to the way those born out of wedlock were treated.
