Confused thinking by Irish Presbyterians over matters gay

Naturally I welcome the resolution with which Irish Presbyterians, at their General Assembly last week, denounced the evils of homophobia:

Reverend Henning insisted:

"Homophobia is no more justified in the world or in the church than racism, ageism or sectarianism."

Of course, these fine words didn't prevent the Assembly passing 'a motion categorically forbidding ministers from blessing the union of gay couples who registered their civil partnerships'. Sigh!
