The Anglican Communion and Sexuality

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | May 28, 2003

As was previously noted, a meeting of the primates of the member churches of the Anglican Communion unanimously voted to issue a statement that they could not countenance the blessing of same-sex unions (because there is no consensus on the issue in the Communion). This issue has the potential to tear the Anglican Communion in pieces: adamantly opposed by the poorer third world churches, it had broader support in the affluent first world, and the primates clearly intended to fire a warning shot across the bow of the innovators. Now, the Bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster has approved the blessing of same sex unions in his diocese, an issue on which a quarter of his congregants have distanced themselves from his authority.
