Archbishop of Canterbury: punish both extremes on Anglican policy regarding homosexuality

CWN - May 28, 2010

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, has proposed penalties against Anglican provinces that break from the worldwide consensus on the proper approach to homosexuality. Citing earlier calls for a moratorium on disputes over the ordination of homosexuals, he said that provinces guilty of violating that moratorium could be barred from ecumenical meetings and from votes on key points of Anglican doctrine. The penalties would apply both to the Anglican provinces that ordained homosexuals despite the moratorium (such as the Episcopal Church in the USA) and those (such as African Anglicans) that made "cross-border interventions" to ordain priests and bishops for dissenting conservative groups.
