Gay bishop: Appointment of Nicholas Chamberlain 'major error' says Gafcon

From The BBC-

Appointing a gay man as the bishop of Grantham was a "major error", the conservative Anglican group Gafcon has said.

Bishop Nicholas Chamberlain said he was gay and in a relationship on Friday.

He was consecrated last year by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby - who has said he knew about the bishop's sexuality.

Bishop Chamberlain told BBC News: "We are all God's people together... I hope that you will be able to understand."

He also said he understood and lived by the Church guidelines, which say gay clergy must remain celibate.
