- The Church of England announced January 4 that it is dropping objections to accepting homosexual clergy as bishops, even those who live in formal civil partnerships, on the condition that they agree to remain celibate.
- The announcement earned a rebuke from African members of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, including Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali, who called the decision “discouraging”.
- In a statement the Church of England said it was “unjust” to exclude gay men from the episcopate who are “seeking to live fully in conformity with the Church’s teaching on sexual ethics or other areas of personal life and discipline.”
