"It was somewhat surprising to read that the primate of Canada [Archbishop Fred Hiltz] would wonder how St. Paul might view the issue of same-sex marriage, considering that Paul's letters seem rather clear on the matter. I believe that Paul's advice to the church would be, 'Do not be deceived.' The apostle's views are recorded in Rom. 1:26-27 and 1 Cor. 6:9-10. Also in this letters are Paul's opinions on whether divorced people are to remarry (1 Cor. 7:10-11), as well as on the ordination of women (1 Tim. 2:12), praying for the conversion of the Jews (Rom. 10:1) and the taking of communion be unbaptized people (1 Cor. 11:28-29). ... As Paul writes in Eph. 6:17, the word of God is the sword of the Spirit, and the helmet of salvation. People fought and died so we might be able to read it in the common tongue. I'd like to ask that more people open up their Bibles and read it for themselves. And I'd be pleased if the Anglican Journal might direct more attention to Scripture as well".
