Obviously, as a lapsed Roman not for me to determine the theorlogy of the CoE but this seems entirely reasonable:
The Church of England is to debate plans to introduce a ceremony akin to a baptism to mark the new identities of Christians who undergo gender transition.
The Rev Chris Newlands, the vicar of Lancaster Priory, has proposed a motion to the General Synod to debate the issue, after he was approached by a young transgender person seeking to be “re-baptised” in his new identity.
I may have the theology a little wrong here but I don’t actually know of anything that argues that you cannot be baptised more than once. Certainly, I was baptised twice (once immediately at birth, very poorly chap I was, then once again more formally later) and as I say, I don’t know of anything in Canon Law to say that it can’t happen again and again.
Don’t forget, baptism and christening are not the same thing. One is the blessing of the soul (and in Roman, the eradication/forgiveness of original sin?), the other the provision of the name.
Obviously, this being this blog there are readers who know all of this in far more detail than I do. So, am I about right?
