The controversy came to a head during the ongoing 2022 Lambeth Conference — a rare meeting of Anglican Communion bishops from around the world.
The Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches (GSFA) — self-described as “a worldwide fellowship of orthodox Anglican Provinces and Dioceses within the Anglican Communion” — came to the conference with the gay marriage ban firmly on their agenda.
“We often feel that our voices are not listened to, or respected,” South Sudanese Primate Rev. Justin Badi told The Church Times. “今天, in Canterbury, we may be ‘gathered together’, but we most certainly cannot ‘walk together’ until Provinces which have gone against scripture — and the will of the consensus of the bishops — repent and return to orthodoxy.”
