The practice of homosexuality is one of several activities of mankind that the Bible and our church deem to be sinful and immoral. That is a responsibility we have rightly fulfilled for over years and that we will continue to fulfill with all diligence. As we preach, we must be led by the Bible which teaches us that a loving and humble spirit should govern our words. With that, we have no problem.
Metropolitan bishop A metropolitan bishop is an archbishop in charge of an ecclesiastical provinceor group of dioceses, and in addition to having immediate jurisdiction over his own archdiocese, also exercises some oversight over the other dioceses within that province.
Sometimes a metropolitan may also be the head of an autocephaloussui iurisor autonomous church when the number of adherents of that tradition are small.
In the Latin Rite, metropolitans are always archbishops; in many Eastern churches, the title is "metropolitan," with some of these churches using "archbishop" as a separate office.
Archbishop William Temple An archbishop is the bishop of an archdiocese. This is usually a prestigious diocese with an important place in local church history. In the Catholic Church, the title is purely honorific and carries no extra jurisdiction, though most archbishops are also metropolitan bishops, as above, and are always awarded a pallium.
In most provinces of the Anglican Communion, however, an archbishop has metropolitical and primatial power. Suffragan bishop A suffragan bishop is a bishop subordinate to a Metropolitan. In the Catholic Church this term is applied to all non-metropolitan bishops that is, diocesan bishops of dioceses within a metropolitan's province, and auxiliary bishops.
In the Anglican Communion, the term applies to a bishop who is a full-time assistant to a diocesan bishop: Area bishop Some Anglican suffragans are given the responsibility for a geographical area within the diocese for example, the Bishop of Stepney is an area bishop within the Diocese of London.
Titular bishop A titular bishop is a bishop without a diocese. Rather, the bishop is head of a titular seewhich is usually an ancient city that used to have a bishop, but, for some reason or other, does not have one now.
Titular bishops often serve as auxiliary bishops. In the Ecumenical Patriarchatebishops of modern dioceses are often given a titular see alongside their modern one for example, the Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain.
Auxiliary bishop An auxiliary bishop is a full-time assistant to a diocesan bishop the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox equivalent of an Anglican suffragan bishop. An auxiliary bishop is a titular bishopand he is to be appointed as a vicar general or at least as an episcopal vicar of the diocese in which he serves.
The appointment of coadjutors is often seen as a means of providing for continuity of church leadership.
Assistant bishop Honorary assistant bishop, assisting bishop, or bishop emeritus: The titles, in this meaning, are not used by the Catholic Church. General bishop a title and role in some churches, not associated with a diocese. In the Coptic Orthodox Church the episcopal ranks from highest to lowest are metropolitan archbishops, metropolitan bishops, diocesan bishops, bishops exarchs of the throne, suffragan bishops, auxiliary bishops, general bishops, and finally chorbishops.
Bishops of the same category rank according to date of consecration. Chorbishop A chorbishop is an official of a diocese in some Eastern Christian churches. Chorbishops are not generally ordained bishops — they are not given the sacrament of Holy Orders in that degree — but function as assistants to the diocesan bishop with certain honorary privileges.
Supreme bishop The obispo maximoor supreme bishop, of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente is elected by the General Assembly of the Church. He is the chief executive officer of the Church. He also holds an important pastoral role, being the spiritual head and chief pastor of the Church.
He has precedence of honor and prominence of position among, and recognized to have primacy, over other bishops. Cardinal In Catholicism, a cardinal, a title dating back to the 8th century, is a member of the clergy appointed by the pope to serve in the College of Cardinals.
This body is empowered to elect a new pope in sede vacantebut cardinals over the age of 80 may not be electors. Cardinals serve as advisors to the pope and hold positions of authority within the structure of the Catholic Church.
Under modern canon law, a man who is not a bishop who is appointed a cardinal must accept ordination as a bishop, or seek special permission from the pope to decline ordination.
Most cardinals are already bishops at the time of their appointment, the majority being archbishops of important archdioceses or patriarchs, and a substantial portion of the rest already titular archbishops serving in the Vatican.
Recent popes have appointed a few priests, most of them influential theologians, to the College of Cardinals without requiring them to be ordained as bishops; invariably, these men are near or over the age of 80, and consequently not eligible to take part in a conclave.
