(Worthy News) - The marriage of worshipers who transition to a different gender will still be valid, the Church of England has said.

The clarification was made in response to a question asked by Prudence Dailey, churchwarden of St Michael at the North Gate, Oxford, ahead of the General Synod in York. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
