(Daily Caller) — The leaders of the worldwide Anglican Communion imposed consequences against the Scottish Episcopal Church on Tuesday for allowing and performing “gay weddings.”
Bishop Mark Strange, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, told the gathering of primates, or Anglican leaders, that the Scottish Episcopal synod accepted the consequences for their June decision, which bars the church from taking part in Communion-wide decisions and from sitting on any church-governing bodies for three years, according to Anglican News.
The Scottish church nevertheless remained resolute in both supporting “gay marriage” and maintaining its membership in the Anglican Communion.
