Royal Wedding: Bishop’s Church Threatened with Expulsion from Anglican Communion for Embracing Same-Sex Marriage

Bishop Michael Curry made waves at the Royal Wedding after showing his stance on equality – which has even caused his church to be punished for embracing equal marriage. In 2016, the head of the US Episcopal Church faced a backlash from the international Anglican Church for being inclusive of LGBT people. The US Episcopal Church has welcomed gay members for years, even appointing openly gay bishop Gene Robinson in 2003. However, the church provoked the wrath of hardline churches within the Communion by voting in 2015 to embrace equal marriage. The church’s head, Bishop Curry, vowed not to back down on equality – even after his church was blocked from Anglican decision-making bodies and threatened with expulsion from the Communion. Curry said in 2016: “This is who we are, and we’re committed to being a house of prayer for all.
