Comments left on the blog listing the signatories to the London clergy letter to The Times show that many people want to be able to add their names to a similar letter or sign a petition.
In response to the surge of energy which erupted yesterday, Changing Attitude will launch a national petition later today. It’s time to show the House of Bishops the depth of lay as well as clergy opinion about the injustice of the Church’s present attitude towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, our families and friends, and the strong desire for change, now, around the country.
The letter from London clergy was initiated not by a campaign or lobby group like Changing Attitude, LGCM or Inclusive Church. It was a genuine grass roots initiative from people who have reached the point where they find the current policy unworkable and want to challenge the status quo.
If you are a London clergy person, and you would like your name added to the letter or if you are in another diocese and would like advice about knowing where to start or who might be contacted in your diocese, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
