The Anglican Church faces a crisis over questions of sexuality and
authority, prompted by the consecration of Canon Gene Robinson as
bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in 2003. The most serious
split in its history seems to be imminent, with liberals on one
side and conservatives on the other. The Windsor Report, produced
in November 2004 by the Eames Commission that was established by
the Archbishop of Canterbury to find a way forward without schism,
seems to offer the last hope of reconciliation For the
conservatives, it's time to take a stand on biblical authority and
moral values. For the liberals, if the Church can't move forward
with society and be more inclusive on questions of gender and
sexuality, much as it has done in the past on questions like
slavery and women's rights, then schism is preferable to unity.
Both sides feel that further procrastination on what they see as
essential is only more damaging in the long term. These
cogently-argued articles by liberals closely involved in the
discussion say that the kind of status quo offered by The Windsor
Report is no answer. There is too much at stake to continue
compromising with the spirit of fundamentalism. Includes foreword
by Dr. J Saxbee, Bishop of Lincoln
