Windsor Continuation Group--Preliminary Observations to the Lambeth Conference

This afternoon the bishops attending the Lambeth Conference were presented with a document containing observations and recommendations for continuing the Windsor Process. On the minus side it reiterated a call for moratoria on public rites for same-gender blessings. On the plus side a separate page [that for some reason is missing from the online version] reiterated a call for a pastoral and sensitive response to gay and lesbian Anglicans and condemned homophobia and victimization of gay and lesbian people.

Anecdotal reports indicate that a number of American bishops spoke against moratoria.

A response from Integrity USA will be released shortly.
