One staff member said they were ‘shocked’ at the cathedral’s decision. ‘Although it is vital that Christians affirm the humanity and dignity of all people who visit, work at and volunteer at the cathedral, treating them with the utmost respect and courtesy, this is a very concerning move. How can a cathedral that carries the name of Christ and claims to stand for compassion and truth join in a celebration of that which Christ describes as sinful?’ the staff member asked.
