Jeg plejer at sige, at progressiv bare betyder ‘fremadskridende bevægelse’. Lemminger har også en fremadskridende bevægelse.
An openly gay priest in the Church of Sweden, one of Europe’s most progressive protestant churches, has vowed to stop marrying heterosexual couples to protest a rule which gives newly ordained priests the choice to perform marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples or not.
During an interview with the state-run broadcaster Sverige Radio, Gårdfeldt, who’s been an LGBTQ activist for over two decades, stated that he will continue refusing to marry straight couples so long as the rule remains in place.
Gårdfeldt’s argued that if straight priests are permitted to deny marriage ceremonies to same-sex couples, then gay priests like himself should be able to choose not to marry straight couples.
