Anglican Archbishop Urges Unity on Gay Rights

The Archbishop of Canterbury urged Canadian Anglicans to support gay rights. Rowan Williams said, “Ask the question, what is for the health of the Body of Christ, both locally and globally?” Williams is under pressure from American Anglicans who have voted to support same sex marriage and gay clergy.

Archbishop Williams has to face the reality that while American Anglicans tend to support gay rights, many Anglicans, particularly in Africa and Asia, are against such rights. The Anglican Church is headed for a rupture over the issue of gay rights.
