Sex is for married heterosexual couples only, says Church of England is of interest

I read past it. It seems to me to be about the perceived difference between a "Civil Partnership", a sort of mostly marriage, and a religious marriage. It seems to miss out on a "Civil Marriage" but I confess to  TL;DR

I have long wondered why gay men and women wish for a marriage, using that specific word. I can see every virtue in a contract which allows full partneship abd heredity benefits including hospital (etc) visiting rights. Even so my long held view is that the LGBT word doesn't need 'marriage'. It's always been a heterosexual term. It has always irked the religious who consider they invented it.

Why did 'we' choose to irk those who feel their religion is more important than even theor own lives?

I see this announcement as the CofE attempting to take back control of its own little fantasy world.

I also think "fuck 'em" for they are trying to control the world's genitals yet again. How interesting that they are unable to control their own priesthood's genitals. Obviously their god's purpose for the clergy is to abuse small boys
