Lesbian Priest Raises Controversy in Canada

A married lesbian working as an Anglican priest in Ottawa, Canada has created controversy among members of the Anglican diocese.  One church has withheld about $36,000 of its dues to the diocese in protest and several clergy signed an open letter denouncing their Bishop. Opponents have charged that the Bishop has reneged on the spirit of the Anglican church's national moratorium on same-sex unions by allowing the lesbian to work as a priest. The Bishop, however, remains supportive of the priest.  Source.  Jennifer Green, The Ottawa Citizen, For the complete story, please click here (last visited May 21, 2006, reo).
