The Archbishop of Canterbury has pleaded with the Church of England’s Anglo-Catholics to resist the temptation to convert to Roman Catholicism over women bishops.
Dr Rowan Williams admitted that the future of the Anglican Communion looked “chaotic and uncertain”.
Preaching in london, he said: “God knows what the future holds.” But he insisted that it remained possible to be at once holy, Catholic and Anglican.
You have to feel sorry for the Archbishop as he contemplates the future of his "Catholic" church without Catholics. Give him his due however for at least begging them to stay. The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church all but begs them to leave, albeit after they hand over the keys and bank books.
