(Worthy News) – To organizers of the Anglican Communion’s Lambeth Conference, the global body has come to a point where it has to agree to disagree on same-sex marriage.
Ahead of the once-a-decade gathering, organizers scrapped a statement that would have reaffirmed the conference’s historic stance against same-sex marriage.
The proposed statement on human dignity—one of many declarations, or “calls,” that will go before the 650 bishops for approval—received pushback from LGBT-affirming leaders in the global body, including Episcopal clergy. The dramatically revised statement now recognizes Anglicans’ “deep disagreement” on LGBT issues instead. [ Source: Christianity Today (Read More…) ]
