Civil Partnerships and Gay Marriage: Both Are Contrary to God's Purpose in Creation and the Moral Law

[The following is from the Evangelical News website].

The Chair of the GAFCON Primates Council, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala (Primate of Kenya), has released a statement which contains criticism of both the Archbishops of York and Canterbury.

Extract from statement:

'...we are painfully aware that the Episcopal Church of the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada continue to promote a false gospel and yet both are still received as in good standing by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Furthermore, the Church of England itself, the historic mother church of the Communion, seems to be advancing along the same path. While defending marriage, both the Archbishops of York and Canterbury appeared at the same time to approve of same-sex Civil Partnerships during parliamentary debates on the UK’s ‘gay marriage’ legislation, in contradiction to the historic biblical teaching on human sexuality reaffirmed by the 1998 Lambeth Conference.'
