anthills–Episcopalians & the Anglican Communion

OLD NEWS, BUT RELEVANT

Filed under: ECUSA — anthill @ 1:14 am

I'm trying to get up to speed with items for the anthill. Here is something from the end of 2005 that will be relevant through General Convention.

The action plan for Integrity, the leading organization in ECUSA for affirming same-sex unions, is here. "No turning back the clock" is their theme. Note especially their claim that permission has been given nationally for same-sex blessings:

Truly remarkable progress has been made in the Church over the past three decades toward realizing its commitment (made in 1976) to fully include ALL the baptized in its life and ministry. Over the past two conventions particularly, we have seen this progress accelerate dramatically, as exhibited in 2003 by the confirmation of Gene Robinson’s election to the episcopate and the permission for dioceses and congregations to bless same-sex relationships.

Discussions on anthill will certainly have Integrity's goals on the radar screen.
