Clarity from the State Church of Norway

Norway, which legalized same-sex partnerships in 1993 and adopted a "gender-neutral" marriage law in 2008, has an established State Church. Yesterday its general synod had a series of votes, as follows:
The legislative assembly (Kirkem√łtet) of the Church of Norway today again rejected proposals to introduce same-sex weddings and to introduce church ‘blessings’ of same-sex civil partnerships. The weddings proposal failed by a vote of 51 to 64, and the ‘blessings’ proposal failed by 54 to 62. However, a motion to affirm that marriage is between one man and one woman was also voted down by the same margin: 54 to 62. A fourth motion that would have recognized “two equal viewpoints” in the Church was also rejected.
Well, that makes it all as plain as day, right? The Holy Ghost is showing a clear path forward in Norway.

  1. I suppose they cannot makeup their minds. 3000 years of Norse History are evidently irrelevant.

  2. ABC Welby seems confused. I am not confused i.e. I know which side I am on. I will pray for the ABC.
