An Anglican Church commission rebuked the Episcopal Church USA yesterday for ordaining an openly gay bishop in New Hampshire and for blessing same-sex unions, and called for a moratorium on both practices "until some new consensus in the Anglican Communion emerges."
In a report issued in London, the commission asked the Episcopal Church to apologize for causing pain and division in the global Anglican Communion, the second largest church body in the world, with 77 million members in 164 countries.
The report also calls for the bishops who consecrated the gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson, to consider withdrawing from Anglican "functions"
until they offer "an expression of regret." The current and former presiding bishops of the Episcopal Church were among the more than three dozen
bishops who encircled Bishop Robinson last November and consecrated him with a laying on of hands.
