“The GSFA is no longer able to recognise the present Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rt Hon and Most Rev Justin Welby, as the ‘first among equals’ leader of the global Communion,” the statement said. 

“He has sadly led his House of Bishops to make the recommendations that undergirded the General Synod motion on ‘Living in Love and Faith’, knowing that they run contrary to the faith and order of the orthodox provinces in the Communion whose people constitute the majority in the global flock.

(Oh brother. To clarify: The Archbishop of Canterbury is not the Anglican Pope. No other Archbishops have an obligation to submit to or agree with him. He's a leader of the church of England, not the global Anglican church. )
