Conservative US bishops urge liberals voluntarily to abide by gay marriage sanctions

Not only will this NOT happen – it should not happen. Christianity Today reports: “Conservative bishops and clergy within the US Episcopal Church have called on their delegates to next week’s Anglican meeting in Zambia to refrain from voting on “doctrine or polity”. Three African provinces are boycotting the meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council because the US church is sending three delegates in spite of “consequences” imposed at the Primates Meeting in Canterbury in January. The Communion Partners, made up a group of conservative bishops and clergy in The Episcopal Church who oppose the liberal direction on gay marriage but have opted to remain within the church, said in a statement after their Easter meeting that the delegates should “refrain from voting upon matters of doctrine and polity” as agreed by the primates.” They sent their letter to our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. It is worthwhile to note that the ‘conservative’ archbishops of the Anglican Communion are so devoted to unity that they will boycott meetings where they don’t get their way on this point.   More.
