Same-sex marriage furore
THE FURORE over the Anglican Church’s decision to reject same-sex marriage looks likely to intensify, with its Pretoria region the latest to voice its unhappiness with the decision.
The matter was an issue of heated debate among delegates during the three-day conference that began on Thursday.
The Pretoria region is among the biggest regions in the country, incorporating parts of the North West with branches as far as Rustenburg, as well as parts of Mpumalanga.
The dissent by Pretoria comes almost a year after the Anglican Church decided it would not allow bishops to “provide prayers of blessing to be offered for those in samesex civil unions”. – Shaun Smillie and Lebogang Seale
