Same-sex spouse ban at Lambeth conference was a 'lose-lose' decision, says Justin Welby

From Premier-

The Archbishop of Canterbury has said the decision to not allow same-sex bishops to bring their partners to the Lambeth Conference in 2020 was made to exclude as few people as possible. 

The Lambeth Conference is a meeting of global anglican bishops, held every ten years, to discuss the future of the denomination worldwide. 

Personal invitations are being sent to 'every eligible bishop and spouse' according to the website, a sentence which previously added 'excluding same sex spouses'. 

Despite the edit, the fact remains that bishops in civil parnterships will not have the company of their partners.
