Bertrand Olivier: Keeping up with Society

The Reverend Bertrand Olivier, an Anglican vicar complaining to the BBC about his Church's recent affirmation of traditional marriage, has said "the Church needed to reflect modern society."
 
No, Mr Olivier. The Church is here to provide an alternative to society, not a pale reflection of it. If Anglican bishops spent more time preaching the good, old gospel instead of handwringing about offending the gay community, they might end up with a Church to be proud of.
