Lets pray that the Lambeth Conference will heal wounds and that with Gods help the church will seek to confirm that we are all equal in the eyes of God.I have noticed that many gay friends have extroadinary compassion and empathy for other people.I suspect it is because they have suffered so much themselves.I am so thankful that I have a large family who supports my son completely without reservation.I pray that the church one day will be able to do this so that all gay people will feel accepted,whole and most of all truly loved.

Meanining: for purposeful dicussion among equals.
e.g. Mugabe murders part of his electorate, buldozes their home, uses the fiscus as his private ATM, steals farms of the white minority, displaces half the population to boadering countries, rigs an election, still loses that election has an indba and still remains in power.
Hmmmmm, Indaba sounds good to me, well done Bishop

Parts of the Anglican World including Britain are forgetting the Christian roots by persecuting their fellow Christians. Both the female and gay clergy are not being allowed to follow their role in the church I love.

Ask yourself, what would Jesus have done?

We must NOT give in to some members deluded idea that it’s perfectly Christian to single out people who are fundamentally different and still to promulgate a sometimes fascistic passion for all things condemnatory. Essentially, their unkind and unforgiving anti-gay rhetoric encourages vicitisation based on difference.

Some of the anti-gay contingents are, without doubt, some of the most lacking in Christian love, and their ruthless and uncaring attitude is an affront to the true doctrine of Jesus Christ.

It is they who MUST see the light and promulgate an inclusive, welcoming church that is against bigotry, devisive argument and negative and destructive mindsets.

It is time th Anglican grew up ans stopped behaving like school yard bullies.

They must contemplate their infighting in terms of how it impacts in real terms on lesbian and gay men within society as well as the church.

That so many anti-gay/lesbian opponents feel so self-satisfied in a complacent and wholely irresponsible way, is an indictment on the Anglican church as a so-called Christian church, and more in keeping with a political extremist group.

Until they change their ways and stop acting as puppets to condemnation, the numbers of the flock will continue to languish between scarcity and destitution.

Wake up all ye true Christians!
