Church of England Archbishop Warns Prime Minister Against Legalizing Homosexual Marriage
Ministers should not overrule tradition on the issue of same-sex marriages, the Archbishop of York has said.
Dr John Sentamu, the second most senior Church of England cleric, told the Daily Telegraph that marriage must be between a man and a woman.
He supported civil partnerships, he said, but only “dictators” tried to overturn history and redefine marriage.
Dr Sentamu also said the Church should do more to avoid its leadership being mainly white and middle class.
The government will open a consultation on the issue of same-sex marriages in March. A consultation on the subject by the Scottish government ended last month.
