Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams won’t back down: neither gay bishop Gene Robinson, nor turn-coat Martyn Minns can attend the Anglican’s Lambeth Conference next year:
The archbishop of Canterbury said Friday he will not reverse his decision to exclude a gay U.S. bishop from joining other bishops at a global Anglican gathering next year.
Archbishop Rowan Williams’ office said he had also not changed his mind about refusing an invitation to Martyn Minns, a traditionalist U.S. priest who was consecrated as a bishop in the Church of Nigeria.
“Given the differences in response to the Episcopal Church revealed in the responses of the primates, we simply cannot pretend that there is now a ready-made consensus on the future of relationships between (the Episcopal Church) and other provinces,” Williams said. “Much work remains to be done.”
Those Americans are always complicating things, huh?
Way to stand up for justice and equality, Rowan.
What a sniveling little asshole. The Episcopalians/Anglicans deserve these problems because they’re too wishy-washy to stand up for what they know is right.
His church is crumbling around him, and will shortly be taken over by schismatic fundamentalists (albeit ones with a proclivity for silk and satin gowns, assorted hats, and way too much in the way of golden accessories for daywear). Eventually all of “rational, mainstream” christianity will fall to the crazy-eyed, rabid fundy yahoos, and then the two big pig-headed religions (christianity and islam) can fight it out and devour each other. Eventually: no religion, and a more pleasant, rational world. If one gay bishop can do all that, hooray for him.
