Aimi Leggett, 25, and civil partner Victoria, 22, had planned to have one-year-old son Alfie christened at St Mary's Church, Gosport, Hants, in two weeks.
However, when both women asked to be listed as the mother in a meeting with Reverend George Gebauer he said the church baptism register would not allow it.
He suggested one be registered as the mother while the other be put down as the Godmother instead.
He said he had to be sure the child had not been pinched as it was impossible that Alfie was a child of both the women.
Aimi and Victoria said they were appalled and stormed out.

Alas, Brave New Babylon.
Won’t be long now.
Have the female homosexuals filed a law suit yet?
Dipping homosexuals any church rite will be cause for being labeled a hate crime by the Feral Gubmint and clerics will be thrown in jail.
Yet he was willing to do it except for calling them both the mother? “Their sexuality has no bearing on the issue. It was never discussed. The church baptism register makes no provision for it.”
He’s as idiotic as they are...
Whoa, the C of E actually has some sort of rule that folks can break? Priest’ll be dis-robed soon enough. He hurt somebody’s feelings! Must never, ever do that.
Regrettably in this case, “It’s not all about .. Alfie”
Wouldn’t the person who gestated and delivered the baby be the obvious choice to be listed as the mother-of-record? What am I missing here?
Oh, wait ... I was missing the fact that they’re all blithering bonkers.
Apparently not, because the "archbishop" agreed to do as the mother and her lover asked. (I put "archbishop" in quotes because anyone who supports this violation of God's word is not a minister of the Gospel.)
So these lesbians were appalled and stormed out?
so, every time a homosexual is outraged at some aspect of society, we’re supposed to quake in our boots with fear, and become politically correct on whatever the issue is?
In this case, we have to cater to their feelings being hurt that some clergyman couldn’t get his arms around the concept of both being mothers to this baby.
Is a lawsuit next? Or reeducation camp for clergy who can’t conform to the liberal view of this issue????.
16 One day two women[e] came to King Solomon, 17 and one of them said:
Your Majesty, this woman and I live in the same house. Not long ago my baby was born at home, 18 and three days later her baby was born. Nobody else was there with us.
19 One night while we were all asleep, she rolled over on her baby, and he died. 20 Then while I was still asleep, she got up and took my son out of my bed. She put him in her bed, then she put her dead baby next to me.
21 In the morning when I got up to feed my son, I saw that he was dead. But when I looked at him in the light, I knew he wasnt my son.
22 No! the other woman shouted. He was your son. My baby is alive!
The dead baby is yours, the first woman yelled. Mine is alive!
They argued back and forth in front of Solomon, 23 until finally he said, Both of you say this live baby is yours. 24 Someone bring me a sword.
A sword was brought, and Solomon ordered, 25 Cut the baby in half! That way each of you can have part of him.
26 Please dont kill my son, the babys mother screamed. Your Majesty, I love him very much, but give him to her. Just dont kill him.
The other woman shouted, Go ahead and cut him in half. Then neither of us will have the baby.
27 Solomon said, Dont kill the baby. Then he pointed to the first woman, She is his real mother. Give the baby to her.
28 Everyone in Israel was amazed when they heard how Solomon had made his decision. They realized that God had given him wisdom to judge fairly.
Interesting. Their lesbian relationship appears to have the approval of the vicar and the C of E, but they aren’t satisfied unless everyone participates in their fantasy that both of them are the mother of the child.
He could have agreed to baptize the baby and just leave the parents’ names blank!
Lesbians are sooo hot.
If Obama was wise he could announce that he will bomb both Assad and rebel targets since it can’t be really proved which side used the gas, thus a pox on both of them...!
Perhaps such a stance will reveal who actually did the bombing and some type of truce could be arranged over there! If not, let both intransigent parties be destroyed!
A true Solomon like position....!
Why? So they can claim their widdle feelers were hurt and they can get ATTENTION. Hey, they’ve already made international news so they won this round.
