September 26 2007

In the United States will be limited opportunity to promote the representatives of sexual minorities to high church office, said in a statement of the American Episcopal Church.

"Start by restrictions on the initiation into the episcopate of any candidate whose lifestyle does not correspond to a larger church and will lead to further aggravation of relations" - said in a statement adopted during a meeting Tuesday with leaders of the Anglican Church in New Orleans (units Louisiana).

In accordance with the document, the restrictions also apply to "gays and lesbians, celibate." In addition, the American Episcopal Church until given permission for wedding same-sex partners. The statement did not say a ban on gay marriage, but merely stated that they will wait "as long as the church would no longer be a broad agreement" on the issue.
