The Province of the Southern Cone believes that both homosexual and heterosexual persons must be extended the best of pastoral care and mercy.
The Province is small with few resources and does not have the time to do all things and has needed to set its own priorities and agendas rather than ones that seem to have been manufactured for them.
The Province has “heard the cries of members of the Communion who have been pastorally abused by those who foist a sexual political agenda upon them.”
The Province formulated a position at the request of the Theological Commission in 2001 but this was not addressed at following ACC meetings. The Province feels the response was deliberately side stepped.
