A regional priest has questioned whether it Is time for the Anglican Church to split, as the debate on the Religious Freedom Bill leaves some of his parishioners feeling anxious over the Christmas period.
The picturesque Saint Matthew’s Church, which lies in tranquil gardens in the heart of Albury, has become a battleground over the identity of the Anglican Church’s future.
The push for the Church to become more progressive has become such a personal fight for local priest Father Peter MacLeod-Miller that he has now removed his clerical collar as he campaigns for equality of LGBTQI+ parishioners.
“It’s such a bad brand,” Father Macleod-Miller said.
“It’s a bit like you walk down the street and people associate you with bad things….”
What does this say about unity in modern religion, generally? https://t.co/BqWI0hvd9c
