All three have played their part in Western morals, legalism being by far the common and most persistent. " (Joseph Fletcher) Fletcher begins Situation Ethics with a review of what he believes to be the three main approaches to decision-making. Legalism The key idea in ethical legalism is that one has a set of laws and regulations already worked out. Along with ethical legalism come preset solutions to moral questions. Why Fletcher rejects Legalism Fletcher rejects ethical legalism for two main reasons. Legalism is also ‘cold and abstract’, because it places the Law above the needs of persons.

Church of England to discuss same-sex blessing

The church's ruling general synod will discuss holding official services, after a couple has married in a secular ceremony, or formed a civil partnership. Same-sex marriages in Anglican churches are banned in England and Wales, though they began in Scotland this year. Traditionalists have called the plans a "fundamental departure". However the idea for the services has been welcomed by LGBT campaigners in the church. The plans have been put forward by the diocesan synod in Hereford, which voted in favour of an "order of prayer and dedication" following a marriage or civil partnership, in response to couples who said they wanted it.

The Bishop of Hereford, the Right Reverend Richard Frith, said: "Clergy are already encouraged to respond pastorally and sensitively when approached. Individual churches and priests would be able to opt out of holding the services if they wished. SitEthics. Situation Ethics - Philosophical Investigations. Situation Ethics - Notes.

Was their influence from America?” So we had our German connection look into it again and it turns out that the company, Biblica, who owns the NIV version, paid for this 1983 German version. Thus it was Americans who paid for it! In 1983 Germany didn’t have enough of a Christian population to warrant the cost of a new Bible translation, because it’s not cheap. So an American company paid for it and influenced the decision, resulting in the word homosexual entering the German Bible for the first time in history. I also have a 1674 Swedish translation and an 1890 Norwegian translation of the Bible.

So then I started thinking that of 4 of the 6 clobber passages, all these nations and translations were referring to pederasty, and not what we would call homosexuality today.

Whistleblower: Catholics must work together to change church's mindset on homosexuality

Klaus Mertes, the German whistleblower who published letters he had received from pupils at a Jesuit school in Berlin who had been abused by teachers for years, has called on all Catholics, "both homosexuals and heterosexuals" to make greater efforts to get the church to change its "deficient" mind-set on homosexuality.

What does St Paul say about homosexuality?

Paul homophobic? Some people come to that unfortunate conclusion when reading some of his writings about homosexuality such as Romans 1:24-27; 1Corinthians 6:9-10; and 1Tim 1:10. In particular, it must be noted that, in the Greco-Roman world of which Paul was a part, it was not uncommon for boys or young men to be kept for the purposes of prostitution.

It was the hardest thing I’d ever had to say to my husband, Marc. Three years ago, I sat down and told him: “The idea of having sex just with you for the next 40 years – I can’t do it any more.”

But I had come to realise that my life was built around something I didn’t believe in: monogamy. We had been together for 12 years and had two children, now nine and seven. I love being a mother and I set the bar high from the start – cloth nappies and cooking from scratch. But I needed something more in my emotional and sexual life.
