UK: One Third of Church of England Bishops Gay?

Written by scott on March 27th, 2014

England ChurchAn Anglican with the Church of England claims a huge percentage of the church’s Bishops are gay.

Queerty reports:

Same-sex marriage is set to kick into gear on March 29th in England and Wales, and it’s stirring conversation on both sides of the issue. Religious leaders are for the most part doing what they do best — staunchly opposing progress. But it looks like the Church of England may be even more hypocritical than usual when it comes to gays tying the knot. According to one Anglican clergyman’s account on The Daily Beast, at least 14 of the church’s 42 Bishops — one third — are gay, though none have publicly come out.

Wow. I’d love to see the same statistics for the Catholic hierarchy!
