According to Zhumbes, the Anglican Church, as a whole, is a communion. The continental bodies are hence autonomous. Due to this, it will be impractical to do more than they had done. This explains why even Rowan Williams at Canterbury did not come out with a clear position on the issue.
The gay issue within the church compelled the Global Anglican Bishop Conference (GABCON) to meet, about a year ago and had deliberations for about two weeks. The result was the policy statement saying that they have resolved to continue to uphold the tradition of absolute adherence to the Bible. By that, GABCON automatically cut off communion with the American offshoot of the church that believes in the incorporation of their cultural beliefs into the traditional doctrine of the church which is drawn from the Bible.
