Putney Vicar Invites Gay Bishop To Preach At St Mary's Church
"I am delighted that Gene Robinson is preaching in Putney.."
However the bishop has been invited to speak at the historic church of St Mary's, Putney, in the diocese of Southwark, by the church's team rector, the Rev Giles Fraser.
Rev Fraser said: "I am delighted that Gene Robinson is preaching in Putney. His exclusion from the Lambeth Conference, a meeting for listening, is an absolute scandal. He is a gracious and deeply courageous man of God."
The rift in the Anglican Communion caused by the homosexuality debate has been widening steadily ever since the ordination by its American wing of the openly-gay Rt Rev Robinson in 2003.
