Bishops welcome same-sex couples
Same-sex advocacy groups have applauded a decision by Anglican bishops from across Southern Africa to welcome gay and lesbian couples into congregations as full church members.
The Triangle Project, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people rights (LGBTI) organisation, welcomed the decision, saying that, “While this is a first step, any step which moves towards inclusion and tackling the stigma against LGBTI people should be welcomed...”
The organisation’s research, advocacy and policy manager, Matthew Clayton, the decision should be seen as a message about the role of people of faith throughout the country in opening their hearts and minds.
