Archbishop of Canterbury and Kevin Rudd - two Anglicans discuss same-sex marriage

From “Welby and Rudd give Anglicans hope on marriage equality” by Gary Bouma

In recent days both the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and Prime Minister Kevin Rudd have made statements about the need to accept homosexuals as people - people who can and do love, and people who are to be included in our communities and churches. 

According to the report in the Telegraph, the Archbishop said that "that the strength of feeling he encountered in support [of marriage-equality legislation] prompted him to reassess his own beliefs." 

The Prime Minister argues from the Bible and sound Christian theology that opposition to the acceptance and inclusion of homosexuals, just as they are, is unbiblical and contrary to the Gospel of the unconditional grace and love of God.
