I heard that it was a dispute between the C of E and the RC over the communion wine and they had asked a guy to revamp the  the wine list except his name wasn't  Jesus it was J ...... ;D

I'm very much liking the idea that it was a dispute over the communion wine. If so, it is a bottle with a label marked new vicar is in civil partnership. It's a story that should get a thorough airing but it's a tricky one to say the least. I declined the offer to go in with both barrels in The Bulletin.

They're doing BARRELS of wine instead of BOTTLES?  There must be a lot of needy congregation!  ;)

Well, if it is the new vicar you nominate, BL, it will be a different one. The new man has stood down. Fallen on his sword, or something like that. Whether this will be enough to persuade the Bish to allow the Anglicans to use the church remains to be seen.

Andrew,

 Doncha just lurve the Catholic Church ? Turn a blind eye to kiddy fiddling ( the altar boy variety ) for years and when they come up against someone in a loving stable relationship they freak out big time.

 Be interesting to see if

 a) they let the Anglicans in again and

 b) What the reactions of the local Anglicans will be . Will they want to go and worship in a place of such hypocrisy ??

 Come back Henry VIII , perhaps you weren't all that bad !!!

 BL  >:( >:( >:( ( and heading for a thousand Hail Mary's )

Totally agree with the "blind eye" reference of the Catholic church and its' past attitude, however, I have reservations about the Anglican clergy and "civil partnerships". That said, it will be interesting to see the view of the congregation and their reaction to the incumbent.

Yea, but they won't be able to react to the incumbent as he has resigned his post.

Much as though I personally don't give two hoots about whether the vicar is gay and in a civil partnership, I can't help feeling that the appointment was bound to cause a problem. Hypocritical perhaps but let's not go there where religions of all sorts are concerned ....

As he has stood down, to now not allow the Anglican community to resume its use of the church would be unfair. The poor guy is out of a job, the concession to local morals has been made, so let bygones etc.

One other point. It appears that Anglican weddings can no longer be held at the church. May not be a big issue but some of these weddings in the past have brought in a healthy number of visitors, so one could argue that the move doesn't help tourism.

 Yeah, but knowing their hypocrisy will probably allow civil partnership blessings !!!!

Bad choice of word Andrew, should have said appointee, but I thought that he was "in post" until his superiors accepted his resignation and appointed a successor.
