News Brief:  Evangelicals “Preparing for Split” from Church of England Over Same-Sex Marriage

Evangelical groups within the Church of England are readying for a split, in the event that the Church opts to embrace same-sex unions.  Under rules hastily implemented during the introduction of same-sex marriage, the Church of England remains opposed to same-sex weddings.  This means that the clergy still cannot carry out services or “blessings” for same-sex couples.

News Brief:  Gay South African Couple Make History with Birth of Triplets

Christo and Theo Menalaou, a South African gay couple, just made medical history after each of their DNA was used to have triplets.  A surrogate mother carried the two eggs, one of which split in two and birthed the third child.

To clarify, the DNA was not combined to form one person.  The twins are born from one father’s sperm and the third child is from the others.  Thus making them, technically, half-siblings.  Despite their doctor recommending that two of the fetuses be terminated early on in the pregnancy, Towleroad reports that the couple elected to proceed with all three.  Although born prematurely, all three are happy and healthy.

Congratulations, Christo and Theo!
