Some UK Vicars Plan to Defy Ban on Performing Gay/Lesbian Weddings in ChurchVicars from the Church of England have threatened to find a way of bypassing the ban on the church performing same-sex weddings in upcoming marriage equality legislation, by blessing ceremonies held in other churches.

Campaigners from the Church of England have said that banning the church from performing same-sex wedding ceremonies would lead to worshippers and clergy marrying in Quaker and Unitarian services, before returning to the Church of England.

A letter to the Telegraph, which contains 150 signatures, said that gay Anglicans should do so, if the legislation on marriage equality goes through as it currently stands, with the ban intact.
