Global South Bishops will be rocked that American Lesbian Bishop will lead “inclusive Eucharist” service on eve of Lambeth Conference

In a move designed to incense orthodox Anglican bishops from the Global South, Episcopal lesbian bishop Mary Glasspool, along with Rev. Canon Tutu van Furth who came out as a lesbian in 2016, will conduct an “inclusive eucharist” service ahead of the opening of the Lambeth Conference.

Glasspool explained the need for an inclusive service, saying: “It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of this ‘inclusive eucharist’, in which we say to all people everywhere: ‘You are loved by our Loving God and welcome at Christ’s table.’

Anti-apartheid activist Tutu van Furth added: “Welcome and hospitality are prized values of the Middle Eastern heritage of our Christian tradition. We want every person who joins us in worship to know to the very fibre of their being that they are welcome.”

Global South bishops will see this as a blasphemous act and will have nothing to do with it.

This act will not only embarrass Archbishop Justin Welby, who has been doing his best to persuade Global South bishops who disapprove of sodomy and homosexual marriage to attend the 2020 Lambeth conference, it will also confirm to African Anglicans that to attend such a gathering would violate both Holy Scripture and their consciences.
