The following are some links which should enable the reader to catch something of the flavours and feelings within the global and local Anglican conversation about homosexuality.
No attempt is made to offer a balanced set of links (e.g. the same number of links for liberal/conservative voices); no priorities should be read into which link is given first and which is given last.
On this Hermeneutics and Human Dignity site it is worth rummaging through previous posts and working from links within them.
1. Material posted on ACANZP's Taonga website (including papers and reports from recent Hermeneutical Hui of ACANZP) or General Synod website
Leviticus 18 from a Maori perspective
Romans 1 from a Pasefika perspective
Leviticus 18 and 20
Theology of Sexuality and 1 Corinthians 5-7
Hermeneutics from a Pasefika perspective
Hermeneutics and Genesis 19
On the Ma Whea Commission
A report on Ma Whea progress
2. Papers from a recent Theology House conference: a wide ranging set of papers is here.
3. For a definitely liberal or progressive perspective (i.e. a perspective promoting change which frees up Christian understanding of marriage and sexuality to be affirming of gay marriage and accepting of faithful, permanent, stable, loving same-sex marriages), go to Tobias Haller's In a Godward Direction.
4. For a definitely conservative or traditional perspective (i.e. a perspective promoting no change to traditional Christian understanding that marriage consists of a man and a woman, and sex outside marriage is forbidden by God), go to Robert Gagnon's Home page.
5. For ongoing posts about the Church of England's (and Anglican Communion's) ongoing engagement with discussion (both informal and formal Synod/House of Bishop levels), consult the following mix: Peter Ould, Bishop Alan Wilson, Changing Attitude, Mainstream, Thinking Anglicans. (These sites are not solely focused on homosexuality, but items posted on them often have to do with the debates and discussion on the topic in the life of the Church of England and of the Anglican Communion).
6. Liturgy makes some points worth reflecting on here.
