Evidence that churches in Britain sanctioned same-sex relationships for as long as 500 years has been presented to the Roman Catholic Church. The claim, at a time when the hierarchies in both the Catholic Church and Church of England are trying to come to terms with gay partnerships, is likely to test their insistence that such relationships cannot be countenanced.
My my my. Isn't that like to put the cat among the pigeons? Or rather, it would if the resistance of either organization had anything to do with historical precedent, but since it's more to do with current personal and social tastes and beliefs, then they're just likely to shrug and say that no doubt these were all intense but celibate "friendships" and that the desire to see same-sex relationships accepted has led these researchers into erroneous interpretations.
Any road, these burials would be consonant with current developments in Britain.
