Anglican Church Allows Gay Clergy to Be Bishops; Says Decision Was Determined by the Equality Act

The Telegraph (British) website reports today (June 19, 2011) that the Church of England is using the Equality Act as a "smokescreen" for allowing gay clergymen to become bishops.

Guidance due to be published tomorrow (June 20) was expected to pave the way for homosexual clerics in civil partnerships to become bishops -- provided they remained celibate.

The document -- published in response to last year's Equality Act -- will be sent to the General Synod before it meets in York next month.
