TEC Response to Global Backlash Against LGBT People

The HuffPost piece is entitled:

The Global Backlash To America's Gay Rights Triumph: American evangelicals are taking their fight overseas.

You'll want to read it here.

It is nothing less than "Exhibit A" of why Resolution A051 -- Support LGBT African Advocacy -- adopted at ‪#‎gc78‬ is one to bookmark and keep on your radar. That resolutions read (in part:)
"Resolved, That the Office of Global Partnerships, Justice, and Advocacy Ministries; , the Office of the Presiding Bishop;, and other relevant church-wide offices be directed to work in partnership with African Anglicans who publicly oppose laws that criminalize homosexuality and incite violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex people."
Read the rest of the resolution here.

There is much work to do and we -- as The Episcopal Church -- have committed to be part of it.
