Next to no changes, acceptances or even considerations have been made in that report. Keep to the status quo, don't change, ignore any concerns and bravery from those who said 'Yes, I'm gay and I love God. So what.'

I hope that one day I will find a church that will celebrate my future relationship with another man. One that will celebrate my future marriage (and here's hoping it happens) to a man. Until then what I will do is take away the lessons that I have learnt and continue to apply them to my everyday life. Knowing that God loves me for who I am, regardless of who I fall in love with.

A recent poll undertaken by Professor David Voas has exposed a rather formidable gender gap in Britain's approach to religion. When asked their opinion on God, only 34% of women responded with atheist or agnostic claims, a figure dwarfed by the 54% of men who agreed with them.

History has given us a colossal record of deceit, manipulation of the many by a resourceful and shrewd few, and the sustained distortion of public perception so robustly at any one time, it is imperative we review the model of society we have inherited. Power derives its life-force from control.

A large proportion of the homophobia that exists in society continues to stem from religious belief. Within this, the active condemnation of homosexuality is often justified as an expression of faith; a religious right where an individual is free to preach - what they perceive to be - the word of God.

The Church of England Is One Generation Away From Extinction? Damn I Hoped It Would be Sooner

I cannot wait for the Church to finally collapse, the Church is steeped in homophobia, sexism and racism and its role in the world is one that only holds people back from the dignity and the equality they deserve. This is not an attack on an individual to seek salvation in whatever form they wish to find it, this is an attack on those who would wish to use religion as a means to control and oppress.

I'm a Christian and I'm angry. Same-sex marriage is to be made illegal in the Church of England and Wales after a debate which has seen disgusting comments made about gay people, both by by so-called Christians and Tory MPs claiming to be on the side of the church.

And so, the anti-gay rants emanating from the Catholic quarters begin again. In his wisdom the new Bishop of Glasgow Philip Tartaglia has decided to suggest that the premature death of gay Labour MP David Cairns could be related to his sexual orientation.

Since the introduction of the vaccination programme in late 2008, critics have been wrongly convinced that because HPV is linked to sexual activity, providing a vaccine will promote promiscuity. Rubbish! That's like suggesting cookery classes promote obesity.

Like any good Church of England girl, I was brought up to believe that God was a man who had a Son.
