IMHO, scripture is NOT clear on the issue of homosexuality, and traditions over the years do not make something right. Slavery and subjugation of women were once endorsed by scripture and scripture was used to uphold those unfortunate things. People FINALLY came to their senses as i hope they will over the issue of homosexuality. Sadly, they probably will not and i believe the church as a whole will render itself irrelevant and out of touch. I see churches focusing way too much on dogmas, beliefs, etc that have all man-made creations and interpretations. They have become idols above and beyond how human beings are treated, which i think brings tears to G-D's eyes. Churches like the Anglicans, Catholics, & Presbyterians careWAY more about being what THEY think is right over how they treat people. VERY SAD INDEED. No wonder people like me want NOTHING to do with church and many of its people. Thank G-D i have Christ in my life and friends who love and embrace me.
Contrary to some who have recently adopted the phrase, there is already a “fellowship of confessing Anglicans”. It is called the Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church is now distancing itself from that fellowship. Ways must be found for all in America who want to be loyal to it, and to scripture, tradition and Jesus, to have that loyalty recognised and affirmed at the highest level.
