Ireland's Anglican Archbishop Looks for Scientific Proof

From the BBC: We may allow gay unions: COI head

Archbishop Harper was speaking at the Anglicans in World Mission conference. The head of the Church of Ireland has said if homosexuality is proven to be biologically predetermined then his church would have to allow gay unions.

"If such comes to be shown, it will be necessary to acknowledge the full implications of that new aspect of the truth," said Archbishop Alan Harper.

Frankly, Archbishop Harper, there's a lot more scientific evidence for the biological nature of sexual orientation than there is for the things upon which you base institutional discrimination against GLBT people.
