How Do You Read the Bible: Same-Sex Marriage and the Anglican Church of Canada

Here’s an article from the Canadian Press on the topic of same-sex marriage and the divisions it is causing in the Anglican Church of Canada.  Noteworthy from the article: 

There is now in the Anglican Church of Canada “a real divide between two ways of viewing the scripture, where the orthodox would argue you use the Bible as a lens and you look at society and judge society through the lens of the Bible.”

“The liberals would say you use contemporary society as the lens and you look at the Bible through the lens of society.”

Which method do you subscribe to?
