The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney has said a church tribunal has dishonored God by allowing the blessings of same-sex marriages.
Archbishop Glenn Davies comments are the latest chapter in an argument that blew up among Australian Anglicans last year. The Diocese of Wangaratta, in north-east Victoria, made history by allowing its clergy to bless married same-sex couples.
Now the church’s highest court, the Appellate Tribunal, has voted five to one in favor of the blessings continuing. The tribunal’s vote is not a ruling.
