    If these Groups can achive their goal especially of getting a good foothold in the General synod then things will really be looking up.

  2. Oh dear, pussy’s amongst the pigeons again in the good old Church of England! Just put the tea and scones out on the vicarage lawn, take a chill pill and relax!!!!

    Mike,
    And that’s where the cat should be…amongst those Synod pigions. No one should relax while this is going on. Your Vicarage lawn tea will have to wait. Remember, Christ did not die to save people, but to teach people how to save each other!

  4. yes again Dr Williams shows his homophobia and lying it’s choice
    when did lying for Jesus become OK?

  5. Dr Williams is a sell-out. He went on a gay pride march when he was younger, but is now too cowardly to stand up for gay rights for fear of offending the homophobes.

  6. Schism is inevitable in the CoE (and leading to disestablishment). In trying to keep his church together Williams has always sought to pander to the conservatives – no matter how disloyally they have behaved – while berating progressives and liberals. It is very good to see the liberal section of the CoE at last beginning to stand up for itself.

  7. I like you Brian Burton, you say so many right things.

  8. Brian not being an Anglican, I always imagined the idle of vicarage tea party and the associated chocolate box sterotype; sadly as I grew older I understand where you are coming from so sorry if it sounded I belittled the agenda…:-)

    Poor old Rowan Williams, his idea of a modern Church is a Church most of us tends to dislike. Modern cities seem to be the exact opposite of what people want as well. The trouble with Bishops is they will say the same thing aged seventy as they were taught to say when they were seventeen.
