Comments: Permanent, Faithful, Stable: Christian Same-Sex Marriage

The fact that Dean Jeffrey John feels able to re-issue his original manuscript indicates the need for a fresh attempt to convince the Church - of which he is a capable and worthy priest - to recognise his state of monogamous and faithful relationship to another human being - who happens to be of the same gender.

The circumstances under which this book has to be re-issued should indicate how slow the Church of England is at recognising its failure to measure up to the standard of justice for Gays - which is recognised by society - but not by the Church.

"How long, Oh Lord; how long - will it take?"
