Mpho Tutu: LGBTI call for equal rights in Anglican Church won't abate
The Anglican Church rejected a motion to offer “prayers of blessing” to people in same-sex civil unions.
CAPE TOWN - Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu-van Furth says the call from LGBTI members to have equal rights in the Anglican Church will not abate.
Tutu van Furth says she's disappointed over a decision made by the Anglican Church of Southern Africa's Provincial Synod to reject a motion to offer "prayers of blessing" to people in same-sex civil unions.
Tutu van Furth, who was forced to give up her priesthood after marrying a woman last year, says she's still hopeful.
"It is a course of love and justice. It will come up again and again until love and justice prevail."
