from episcopalchurch:

"The House of Bishops had asked its theology committee in 2009 -- prior to the 76th meeting of General Convention -- to study the theology of same-gender relationships. In its report to the convention the committee said that the study would be 'designed to reflect a full spectrum of views and to be a contribution to the listening process of the Anglican Communion, as well as to the discussion of this subject in our province.' The committee said the study would be 'a long-term, multi-step project that is designed to be completed in 2011.'

"Controversy developed in early June 2009 when Parsley initially declined to release the names of the theologians appointed by the committee to conduct the study. The names have since been released ..."

... and are now listed in the linked article.

Is there a difference between "same gender relationships" and "same sex relationships" ?

I take it that they didn't say "to study the theology of homosexuals" because there would be nothing to study.

It's there in black and white:

"Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God."

Not nearly as desparate as you when you post stories abt. the RCC sex scandal just to distract from events in TEC.

Before you left on hiatus, I recall posting a story that said the theology to support same-sex relations just wasn't there.

BTW, welcome back; as you can see, not much has changed.
