Many hard things have been said about Rowan Williams and it was, by and large, justified. He did not come out firmly on doctrinal matters which allow of no debate but did, in the last few years, on the gay mafia’s ludicrous attempts to define their partnerships as marriage.
It’s beginning to look as if Cameron is playing games with the gay community. I wrote before that he doesn’t give a damn for them and it certainly begins to look that way.
Appointing John Sentamu who is anti-gay “marriage” may be the deal. You let us appoint a Ugandan and we’ll lay off the gay issue. There’s no other way to see it because Sentamu’s position is equally unequivocal.
Now, on Sentamu himself, it’s neither here nor there to me although I do think an English Archbishop should have been appointed for England. Sentamu would be a fabulous appointment for the land of his birth.
Let’s say that he is part of the game as well and that an Englishman will eventually be appointed after the brouhaha. What’s the bet he’s a
socialist liberal again? If a miracle occurs and a conservative English theologian of impeccable qualifications is appointed, I’ll publicly eat humble pie on this blog.
