LGBT Officer at Dorset Equality Network Alan Mercel-Sanca said “It’s important to get it out there to really emphasise to people that we are living in the early 20th Century, and its up to people to use their own wits and wisdom and their own conscience to make the right decisions for themselves and not for others to control their lives.”

The Church of England synod, the governing body made up of Bishops, clergy and laity which decides on church law and policy, will be meeting later this afternoon to vote on whether to confirm or reject the Bishops’ report on same sex marriage.
