The Church of England could hold a historic vote on gay marriage as early as 2022, as Archbishops apologised for the “damage and hurt” caused to the LBGTI+ community. The House of Bishops published its long-awaited report, “Living in Love and Faith”, in a bid to hold “open and honest” discussions and learn about gender identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage – subjects that are controversial within the Christian faith. In a foreword to the report, Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Stephen Cottrell, the Archbishop of York, acknowledged and apologised for the “huge damage and hurt” that has been caused to LGBTI+ people within the church. The Archbishops also gave an indication of the timeline for “decision-making” on issues such as same sex marriage, saying they hoped to come to conclusions by 2022.
