I confess that I wasn’t present at Synod when our Archbishop announced our church’s one million dollar contribution to the ‘NO’ campaign on same-sex marriage. In truth, I’m glad I wasn’t there. I fear I might have howled loudly!
I was still reeling when the Sydney Morning Herald journalist called me the following day and asked for a comment. All I could say was that I felt shattered by the news.
Having said that, I felt less shattered when I read this article, as it made me realise that I was not the only one howling! These dissident voices hardly represented a fissure in the Diocese, but to me they were a light shining in the darkness.
