The new Bishop of Toronto, the Rt. Rev. Andrew Asbil a proponent and supporter of same-sex marriage, recently participated in euthanizing a couple who had been married for 73 years.

On March 27, George and Shirley died, holding hands in their own bed in a Toronto retirement home with the help of two doctors, their children and Asbil, who watched from the foot of the bed as the couple drew their last breaths at almost the same moment.

Asbil, then the Dean of Toronto’s St. James Cathedral, later told blogger David of Samizdat that he had “without hesitation”, supported the couple’s wish for their funeral to be held at the Anglican church.

This is the first recorded act of an Anglican cleric being present and openly supporting a couple intentionally committing suicide.

Asbil is also a proponent of same-sex marriage. When asked if General Synod were held today, how would he vote on the Marriage Canon amendments, Asbil said, “I would vote in favor of the motion.”
