Evangelicals declare sex issue is first order issue

[The Church of England Newspaper] November 2, 2005--Anglican Mainstream, in an effort to unite all factions of the evangelical wing, has set in stone how it views the contentious issues of homosexuality and ministry for women. In a statement released last week it has categorised the former as a ‘first order issue’ and the latter as ‘second order issue’. Disagreement, it says, on the issue of homosexuality — equal in importance to the deity of Christ, the crucifixion and the resurrection — would be impermissible and would put someone ‘outside the limits of orthodox Christianity’.
