It is fine that Archbishop Finlay could bless this marriage; unfortunately he should not have tried to do it in God's name. Putting words in God's mouth is called "blasphemy." The archbishop could bless anyone and anything as he sees fit, but it is the archbishop's blessing, not God's, for God made it abundantly clear in Scripture that he calls homosexuality not wrong, but rather "an abomination." Pretty harsh stuff if you ask me. But don't ask me, for my opinion is no better than the readers who wrote in praising the archbishop. God alone has that authority.
We are all equal in the eyes of the Lord, equal in love, grace, mercy and sin. The chaff from the wheat is demonstrated by accepting what the Lord has made acceptable in his eyes and repenting of that which is not.
