    Default Anglican Church apologises to LGBT but sanctions US Church for having gay minster

    Cassocks in a twist.

    The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has apologised for "hurt and pain" caused by the Anglican Church to the LGBT community.

    However, he said a US church was facing "consequences” over the ordination of openly gay Canon Gene Robinson.

    In other words, we are sorry but we will just continue to cause you "hurt and pain”.
    Bit of a mixed message.

    I wish there is a land or country in this world where only LGBT people have the rights to reside and would love to see how many hetero or 'normal' men and women visiting this land. Straight people and Religion will never understand us

    I don't understand why LGBT people are members of any church because they hate you!

    Genuinely confused here.

    Organised religion only change their views when membership starts to dwindle.

    The clue is probably in one definition of the word Church "body or organization of religious believers:" ipso when these believers do not believe together in an organised manner, the body reflects this by sending out a mixed message... this can cause mirth outside the Church as it people contrast the principles of the body with the confused message... there we go..

    Indeed this is part of his problem. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, is not "Pope" of the Anglican Church. In fact the Anglican Church does not exist outside of England but is worldwide, an organization of religious believers, not a single organisation. It is even called different things in different countries. (Church of Scotland, Church of Ireland, Episcopalian Church etc.)
    Justin Welby is almost in a secular sense their “chairman” rather than their” boss”. So, he is between a rock and a hard place, having to balance the beliefs of an English Church that is reasonably broadminded and filled with people who do not take the whole “God Thing” too seriously and, for example, some African Churches who take it extremely seriously.

    "I don't understand why LGBT people are members of any church because they hate you!"
    And why want to get married in any church?
    Two reasons, I suspect.
    1. Equality. If heterosexual couples can get married in church, and join the church as ministers, they want to be able to as well.
    2. They believe this stuff! They are Christians, and they are gay. They do not want to deny or hide their sexuality and they want to take a full part in the church.

    Justin Welby finds the date of Easter to be a movable feast, and is in favour of having it fixed.

    10,000 years of Middle Eastern civilisation and the place is not at peace but rather in pieces.
