Archbishop accused of trying to 'split' Anglican church over same-sex marriage

From Australia-

Anglican Archbishop of Sydney Glenn Davies has been accused of trying to force a historic split in the church over same-sex marriage as he moves to deny funds to any diocese that wavers from marriage doctrine.

Dr Davies' speech this week calling for those who disagreed with the church's doctrine on marriage to "please leave us" sparked a wave of criticism within the Anglican communion, which is riven by division over this and other issues.

Andrew Sempell, rector of St James' Church in Sydney, said the archbishop was trying to provoke "a split, a schism" between progressive and conservative Anglicans.

"There's a degree of madness. The diocese of Sydney is promoting divorce within the church over this issue," he said.
