Are we really having to have another discussion about this? Aren’t we done? It’s hard to be funny when you’re fuming, when you’re finding it insanely hard to keep from turning into a giant green rage monster.

So, a couple of Sunday’s ago (09/07/2017 – if you’re wanting to look for what I’m talking about) the BBC hit Sunday Morning Live talked about the issues of Transgender persons in the eyes of the Church of England (CoE) and whether they should be more accepting.

Now, before I sound too totalitarian I have to add a disclaimer (yes, another one) that I understand that faith and religious standings are subjective, that’s why denominations like the Catholics, Baptists, etc exist. I also understand that standing by your convictions, like David Cameron at the end of the Brexit vote, means leaving when times are right for you to do so.
