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."

"The substance of a sermon preached by the Rt. Rev. John M. Krumm at St. Paul's Church, Tustin, California, June 8, 1986 -- AIDS Mass IV. Bishop Krumm is the retired Bishop of Southern Ohio". -- p. [1].
Contents: [Sermon] -- A prayer.
"Even as I welcome you to this Eucharist today, I need to ask the question: 'Why is this specially designated service of worship necessary ?' ... In 1918 a ravaging epidemic of influenza decimated the whole population, including the United States. Yet so far as I know, there was never any 'Flu Mass' proposed or celebrated. There were probably special prayers in the churches and synagogues, just as there are such prayers in all our current liturgies. But this special liturgical effort is, I believe, unprecedented (p. [1-2])." "This is not just a public health problem. The problem is also one of an appalling lack of ordinary humanitarian concern where a despised and feared and hated minority seems to be at risk (p. [2])". "In far too many religious bodies, including a large part of the Episcopal Church, the response to the crisis in humanitarianism posed by the epidemic of AIDS has been isolated, cautious and tentative. Our theology of sexuality is in part to blame, and it needs to be re-examined in light of recent psychological studies" (p. [3]).

On 15 May 1996, "an ecclesiastical court ruled that retired Bishop Walter Righter violated no Church law or `core doctrine' when he ordained a non-celibate homosexual man as a deacon." The court ruled that there is "no core doctrine prohibiting the ordination of a non-celibate homosexual person living in a faithful and committed sexual relationship with a person of the same sex".

Notes
Matthew Shepard, a 21-year old University of Wyoming student, who was active in the Episcopal Church, died [12 October 1998] five days after had been pistol-whipped and lashed to a fence post in near-freezing temperatures outside Laramie, Wyoming. Two men have been charged with his murder; their girlfriends have been charged as accessories. "Police have said that robbery was the main motive for the attack, but they have acknowledged that Shepard apparently was chosen in part because he was gay. Shepard had said that he had been beaten twice in recent months, attacks he attributed to his open homosexuality". "Acknowledging Shepard's death, Dr. Pam Chinnis, president of the Episcopal Church's House of Deputies, pointed out in a statement that four months earlier, an African-American man, James Byrd, Jr., was beaten and then killed in Jasper County, Texas, a victim of racial hatred".
Also includes "A statement from the Presiding Bishop [Frank Griswold] on the death of Matthew Shepard".
