Synod motion only affirming Holy Scripture

Why should we be so perturbed at the Church of Ireland Synod being asked to affirm what is, after all, Biblical teaching: that the 'one flesh' relationship should be between man and wife only? (News, May 9).

After all, that was God's plan in Genesis, reiterated by Christ Himself in the gospels. Anything else was considered immorality, as the epistles point out.

I do not know who was responsible for this motion, but it would be a sad day for the Church of Ireland if they ceased to believe the clear teaching of Scripture.
