    Oh well, yeah the Anglican Church…I left the Anglican Church after I experienced that the clergy and bishops are far better at lying than politicians…that is when I decided to quit the church…I taught Religious Education for over 20 years and became a lay minister for 11 after that…Practising what they preach is not something they believe or follow…thats what others are suposed to do…I say do your self a favour stay away from the priesthood in the Anglican Church..

  2. I’m amazed to hear that Mr. Sisneros was rejected for training by the Anglican Church of New Zealand, as the Anglican Church, like the Catholic Church, has been welcoming gay men into its ranks for centuries! I suppose, however, that the vast majority of those gay men have hidden their sexuality at the interview stage. Perhaps Mr. Sisneros decided not to?

    Correction needed to this article as the Human Rights Review Tribunal has not ruled yet – its decision was reserved. That aside this has been a fascinating week for those of us involved in the Anglican Church in New Zealand, and adds to our Church’s dilemma now that samesex marriage has been approved by Parliament and comes into force in August. We live in interesting times :-)
