David Hope

THE Archbishop of York has warned the Anglican Church is on the brink of “implosion” over the issues of homosexual clergy and women bishops. Dr David Hope said the Church of Englands “fundamental Christian message” was in danger of being lost. Dr Hope, 64, who is about to retire from the Churchs second most important post, said: “What I do worry about is whether or not by concentrating all our hopes and energies on these two particular issues, we are imploding on ourselves.” His comments were made following a meeting of more than 50 bishops called to discuss the crisis in the Church over the issues. Dr Hope said the infighting deterred both young and old people and there was a need for the Church to “turn ourselves outwards”.
