From Mr Steve Turner

Sir: The Bishop of Southwark ("Bishop says he is willing to ordain homosexuals", 15 March) betrays faulty logic when he indicates that his mind has been changed through knowing clergy "in stable homosexual relationships who live godly lives of integrity and spirituality".

How is he able to measure this "godliness"? The argument of Scripture is that a homosexual practitioner is, by virtue of the practice, not living a godly life. It is not for the Bishop, or any other Christian leader, to rescind commandments because those who break them appear to be nice loving people.

Yours faithfully,

STEVE TURNER
