Gafcon proposes a peaceful “structural separation” in the Anglican Communion

from Evangelical Focus:

Nicholas Okoh, Primate of All Nigeria and Chairman of Gafcon (Global Anglican Future Conference) said in his monthly letter that the group “is proposing a way of handling disagreement which has theological integrity, but minimises the hurt and distress that has been all too evident”.
He recalled that they authorised the creation of Anglican Church of North America as a new province, because many in that region “had been outcast from the Episcopal Church of the United States (TEC) simply because they refused to compromise with a false gospel”.
Okoh denounced that TEC has spent more than $60 million in lawsuits against conservatives “since 2000 and that pattern of behaviour continues to this day”. This has not only happened in North America; recently, “persecuted Anglicans in Brazil formed the Anglican Church of Brazil in May this year with the endorsement of the Gafcon Primates Council”, the Gafcon Chairman pointed out. “This realignment of the Anglican Communion will undoubtedly continue”, that is why “Gafcon is proposing a fresh approach in order to minimise conflict”, Okoh said.
