"The Archbishop of Canterbury is bending over backwards to placate the rabid homophobes of the born again charismatic wing of the church in the belief that cohesion is more important than conscience. He knows what we all know, that gayness is not a sin, it’s not even a faux pas. It is the way some people are, but to placate a sordid, spiritually bereft prejudice he will go halfway round the world to search out mendacious phrases to keep the church one big, unhappy, sniggerable communion.
"What he should be doing is laying about him with an axe. He should welcome schism. He should tell them to take their massive thermometers and smudgy imaginations and sod off." —A.A. Gill
