Chris sends these photos to accompany tonight's follow up - it's the new bishop back at his parish in Virginia, All Saints Dale City...

    I do feel that the Chism in the Anglican communion is widening.

    Homosexuality has never been embraced by the Church but has always been a part of the Church.

    Christianity is meant to be a religion that accepts everyone. I suppose the difficulty the the anglican communion has is it can't now find a common middle ground that the anti-gay bunch are happy with.

    The Dean of our Cathedral in St Albans is gay and we are quite happy to have him here after Reading turned him down as Bishop.

    Christianity is not meant to be a religion, but it is a way of life that accepts anyone who repents. When a branch of the Church doesn't even expect its leaders to repent, it is in dire straits.

    Some years ago there was a big debate about women priests. Many who opposed that idea left the C of E, with the result that it was left with a much greater % majority in favour than before.
    The Anglican Communion doesn't work quite the same way, but similar results could happen on an issue which is much more clear-cut Biblically than the ordination of women.

    Vyle (7), that's what I hate about many religions -- always trying to get people to repent; even those who haven't done anything that requires it.

    Appers @ 8, I couldn't agree more!

    Have you also noticed the way that the holier-than-thou squad never seem to want you to give up something *they* need to give up, but only things they don't themselves want to do in the first place?

    Bah, or words to that effect.

    Mr Fish (9), Indeed I have. Double bah.
