Americans win support

Two leading figures in the Anglican world this week gave support to conservative parishes in America who are opposed to their Church’s decision to consecrate the Anglican Communion’s first active gay bishop.

In a move that will give dissenting parishes greater legitimacy and confidence and increase the pressure on the American Primate, Frank Griswold, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, and the Ugandan Primate, Archbishop Henry Orombi, have agreed to provide them with oversight.
