Anglican leaders rejected the leadership of the archbishop of Canterbury in a scathing letter after the Church of England voted earlier this month to offer blessings for same-sex couples.

The statement against Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was signed by archbishops from 10 of the 42 provinces of the global Anglican Communion who represent conservative provinces, mostly in Africa and Asia, that believe homosexuality goes against the Bible.

“The Church of England has chosen to break communion with those provinces who remain faithful to the historic biblical faith,” said the statement from members of the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches.

The archbishops claimed the Church of England “has departed from the historic faith passed down from the Apostles by this innovation in the liturgies of the Church and her pastoral practice,” and drifted into “false teaching.” It is therefore “disqualified” from being the leader of global Anglicanism, the letter stated.

The archbishops further said that they were “no longer able to recognize the present Archbishop of Canterbury as the first among equals leader of the global communion.”

The line, it is drawn, the curse, it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the present now will later be past
The order is rapidly fading
And the first one now will later be last
For the times, they are a-changin'
