Following criticism from Anglican bishops, participants in the Lambeth Conference in Canterbury, England will be given the opportunity to “clearly state their opposition” to a motion against same-sex marriage and blessings of homosexual unions.
A statement published on July 26 — one day before the start of the conference of the Anglican Communion — announced that participants could now vote for a third response to motions, referred to as calls: “This Call does not speak for me. I do not add my voice to this Call.”
The short-term change was the result of criticism of the wording of the call on Human Dignity, which says “legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions” could not be advised.
It also states it was “the mind of the Anglican communion as a whole that same-gender marriage is not permissible.”
