NOTTINGHAM, Eng. (June 23, 2005)
The decision to exclude the Anglican Church of Canada from two Anglican Consultative committees on which it does not sit is regrettable in principle but will have no practical effect, says Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Canadian church.
"We do regret the decision, although we note it was adopted by an extremely narrow margin," Archbishop Hutchison said. "Had out members and our American colleagues been allowed their vote, it would have failed. We regret that the Anglican Consultative Council made such a decision in a forum in which we are not being allowed to participate an in which we have no voice. There is, after all, a pretty fundamental democratic principle that says that when decisions are made that affect you, you are allowed to speak to them".
Archbishop Hutchison added: "Our hope is that the discussions and debates of the past few days will provide impetus for the discussion about homosexuality and the role of gays and lesbians in the church to begin in those parts of the Anglican Communion where they have not yet begun."
The Consultative Council approved a motion affirming a request made by the Primates of the Anglican Communion last February [2005] that the Canadian and U.S. churches "voluntarily withdraw" their members from the meeting now underway.
The affirming motion stipulated, however, that the Primates' request that the Canadian and U.S. churches withdraw from the ACC should be interpreted as including participation on the standing committee, which meets between triennial sessions of the full council, and inter-Anglican finance and administration committee.
Neither Canada nor the United States have members on those two committees and since their members at this meeting are not participants, they are not eligible for election.
Earlier in the meeting, in response to another request made by the Primates, representatives of the Canadian church made a presentation explaining where it is on the controversial issue of blessing same-sex unions. The U.S. church made a similar presentation explaining how it came to consecrate an openly gay man as bishop.
Archbishop Hutchison, who is scheduled to return to Canada today, said he would be making a full report to the Canadian Church in a statement that will be issued early next week.

Notes
On 2 November 2003, over 3,000 people including 54 bishops and ecumenical guests, gathered at the Whittemore Center, part of the University of New Hampshire, Durham, to consecrate V. Gene Robinson, an openly gay man, as bishop coadjutor of New Hampshire. Objections were read by Meredith Harwood, a parishioner of St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Ashland N.H. and the Rt. Rev. David Bena, Suffragan Bishop of Albany. Bishop Griswold the chief presider allowed the consecration to continue saying: "one of the African Primates at the meeting in Lambeth Palace [two weeks ago] had said that the Holy Spirit can be doing different things in different places and I think that's precisely what we are doing here". The consecration drew strong criticism from many in the Communion including the Sub-Dean of the Anglican Cathedral in Harare, Zimbabwe, and the American Anglican Council. It was also affirmed by the organization Changing Attitude and by the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement. "Bishop Robinson told the congregation that, although he felt deeply honoured, he urged compassion towards church members angered and upset by his consecration."

Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada hosted the third Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue in June [2012]. It grew out of Lambeth 2008, which uncovered divisions on the issue of human sexuality and same-sex relationships. The group was originally organized by Archbishop Colin Johnson of the diocese of Toronto. 'There's a real commitment and a deep recognition that we need each other', said Archbishop Johnson".

"Edited by Duncan Dormor and Jeremy Morris".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"We are a group of theologians who work mostly in a university context, and in theological education. .... Out of a basic belief that the Church of England should be able to move to a position of greater toleration of faithful, stable gay relationships, we want to lay out for those outside the academy, as well as within it, reasons why we believe this is a debate worth having in the church. It is the conviction of the authors of this volume that, for all that this is an issue on which there are serious matters of principle on both sides, and for all that the symbolic nature of the confrontation of Christian faith and modernity is very acute, this is not actually a decisive question for the survival of Christian faith itself, nor for the survival of the Church of England and of Anglicanism more widely". -- Intro., pp. 2-3.
