I was pleased tonight to read this article - IOL – Church makes key decision on gay couples – the link and excerpt of which were sent to me by my Google Alert on the keyword “Cape Town”.
I have been a member of the Anglican Church since I was a child and recently (since 2007) began re-attending the Anglican Church of my youth. As a gay friendly person and a Christian, I am very pleased to see that the Anglican Church met in Synod this past weekend and decided to adopt a resolution to accept and care for all gay couples in committed relationships in their parishes. Clergy of St George Street Cathedral parish proposed the resolution saying that their parish has come to be seen by gay couples as a “safe place” for them.
Archbishop Thabo Makgoba sees the resolution as an important first step towards the Southern Anglican Church ministering to its gay members.
