The Archbishop of Canterbury has declared that he has “no problem” with homosexuals being bishops


The Archbishop of Canterbury has declared that he has “no problem” with homosexuals being bishops, in his first explicit statement on the subject since taking office. In an exclusive interview with The Times, Dr Rowan Williams goes farther than ever before by indicating his personal support for the consecration of gay bishops in the Church of England. But he makes clear that he will never endorse gay clergy in active relationships because tradition and historical “standards” dictate that gay clergy must remain celibate. His comments provoked a furious response from campaigners for gay equality and risked deepening divisions within the Church of England and the wider Anglican communion. Conservatives argued that he was putting himself at odds with 2,000 years
