'Abomination': Church exits over same-sex marriage

From New Zealand-

A Dunedin church opposed to the blessing of same-sex civil marriages has withdrawn from the Anglican diocese, with its minister saying homosexuality is an "abomination".

St Matthew's Church in Stafford St this week voted to disaffiliate from the church.

Bishop of Dunedin the Rt. Rev Steven Benford confirmed the move after inquiries from the Otago Daily Times.

He said at a special meeting on Monday the St Matthews congregation in Dunedin voted to disaffiliate, "a result of the General Synod resolution on the blessing of same-sex civil marriages passed in May 2018''.
