G'day JustinO,
The Church of England is expected to confirm that openly gay clergy can be made bishops, if they are celibate. Legal advice is due to be published as early as Monday saying homosexual clergy in civil partnerships can become bishops. The move is in response to the Equality Act, which protects from discrimination on the grounds of sexuality. But it risks deepening divisions over gay clergy, which threaten to split the Anglican Communion worldwide.
