Dr Williams has made a split inevitable in the Anglican Church (Times Online)

Ruth Gledhill reports:

The Archbishop of Canterbury also came under attack from liberals, particularly in the United States, who accused him of “rank hypocrisy” for blaming them for rifts among Anglicans, while British liberals criticised him for putting unity before belief.

The Rev Susan Russell, of the US gay lobby group Integrity, said that Dr Williams was seeking a false unity based in dishonesty. The latest revelations would encourage liberals in North America to press on with their agenda and protect them against charges of apostasy, she said.

Yes, Susan it will encourage. But it could also have the opposite effect. There is something to the argument (not that I agree with it) that says: here is a real liberal leader who wants restraint. Dr Williams has made a split inevitable in the Anglican Church -Times Online
