Former Canadian Primate: don’t give in

From the Toronto Star:

OTTAWA–Choosing his words carefully, the longtime former leader of the Canadian Anglican Church opened a conference on gay rights in the church last night with a gentle, but deliberate, nudge toward acceptance and a rejection of rigid doctrine.

“Matters of doctrine become matters of control,” Michael Peers, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada from 1986 to 2004, said, breaking three years of public silence.

“That’s something you need to take away with you in the coming events.”

I liked this part: “”Generally speaking, the tradition in the church has been, I don’t like what is happening in my church, so I must leave.”

“Not, I don’t like what is happening – you must leave.”

Read it all.
