NEWS FLASH:  Serving bishop, the Rt Revd Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham has signed the letter.

On February 11th 2017  fourteen retired bishops broke with convention and sent a letter to all their episcopal colleagues in the Church of England, voicing concerns over the recent Same Sex Marriage Report.

In it, they explain they have chosen to do so because of their concern that a report that does not allow the authentic voice of LGBT people to be heard or the real theological argument to be advanced will not enable the church to engage credibly with wider society.
