Congratulations to the Polis

Congratulations are in order to Lothian and Borders Police for becoming the most gay friendly employer in Scotland according to Stonewall.

It is an amazing turn around – 20 years ago it would have been inconceivable to me that a police force could ever be named as a gay friendly organization. We should not underestimate this achievement.

Now, which of the mainstream churches can clean up its act and be the first denomination to do the same? Instead of providing candidates like the Bishop of Hereford for the Bigot of the Year award, wouldn’t it be nice to aim for something more wholesome?
