Many Episcopalians Wary, Some Defiant After Ultimatum by Anglicans - New York Times

Many Episcopalians Wary, Some Defiant After Ultimatum by Anglicans - New York Times: "Now the conservatives who numerically dominate the global Anglican Communion have handed their Episcopal branch in the United States an ultimatum that requires the church to reel in the rainbow if it wants to remain a part of the Communion.

With a communique issued in Tanzania on Monday after a five-day meeting, the leaders of Anglican provinces around the world (known as primates) asked the United States branch to bar gay men and lesbians from becoming bishops, and to stop official blessings of same-sex unions. The communiqu´┐Żeven specified a deadline: Sept. 30.

There is no certainty that Episcopal leaders will now comply. "
