Ex Sydney Anglican and strong supporter of women's ordination and LGBT people ...has sadly passed away.

ANGLICAN Bishop of Gippsland John McIntyre died on Friday night at Monash
 Hospital, Clayton, at the age of 62, after losing his battle with a short respiratory
 illness.Before his work in the Gippsland Diocese, Sydney-born Bishop McIntyre
 was the rector of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney South Sydney parish for 15 
years.He had developed a reputation as an alternative voice in the Anglican 
Church, often taking a stance against more conservative views. This included 
supporting the ordination of women and rights for  gays within the church.'s terribly sad to lose such 
a brave man...You know he was 
a man who had the courage to 
fight for equality within the church
...and then face the pressure from
 conservative forces within the church.
Yes Calam...he played a role in 
Changing Attitudes 


  1. This fine man became an enemy of the self-righteous David Ould who now has the gall to praise him. Bishop John now has a place in Heaven, having been the victim of hypocrites like Ould who persecuted him on earth.

  2. So sad to hear. May Bishop John rest in Peace and rise in Glory

  3. Church has delusions of relevance.
