New hope for traditionalist Anglicans in the UK

From Premier-

Traditionalist Anglicans in the UK are being given new hope as a new bishop has been appointed to look after those unhappy at potential changes to church teaching on sexuality.

Despite not being appointed with the blessing of church officials here, Rev Canon Andy Lines said he had accepted the new role because it is a "logical next step".

Speaking on the divide within the Anglican Communion his appointment could cause, he told Premier: "I think that actually the people who should have worried about that are the people who've made the decision today in the Scottish Episcopal Church because they're the ones who are moving away.

"I am staying where the Anglican Communion has always been in its beliefs."

The Scottish Episcopal Church recently voted in favour of allowing same-sex couples to be allowed to marry in church, putting it at odds with the majority of the global Anglican Communion.
