"Please leave us" Sydney's Anglican Archbishop tells people want to change doctrine

From Australia-

Glenn Davies, Anglican Archbishop of Sydney has a message for people who disagree with him – and his diocese about same sex blessings – they should leave the church rather than fight. “My own view is that if people wish to change the doctrine of our Church, they should start a new church or join a church more aligned to their views – but do not ruin the Anglican Church by abandoning the plain teaching of Scripture,” he told his Synod (church parliament) in his final address to them. “Please leave us. We have far too much work to do in evangelising Australia to be distracted by the constant pressure to change our doctrine in order to satisfy the lusts and pleasures of the world.”

Davies’ theme was ‘guarding the faith’ and he  commended two new bishops in his address – Mark Calder a minister from Noosa who will become the next bishop of Bathurst, who will be supported financially by Sydney diocese (region) as the country diocese is in a financial drought after spending on schools plunged it into debt. Davies described Calder as an able minister who has grown parishes in both Roseville in Sydney and the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Good for him. That is what all the progressives/liberals in the Episcopal Church should do.
