As Evangelical members of the Synod, we would like to make it clear that this simply isn't true. Many Evangelical Christians wish to welcome and celebrate committed same-sex relationships [...] we welcome the House of Bishops' proposals as an important step on this journey, and thank the College and House for their discernment. We look forward to being able to express God's love and blessing to more people in our communities
