Welby warns on Church split over homosexuality

A split in the Anglican Church over the issue of homosexuality "would not be a disaster, but it would be a failure", the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.

Speaking ahead of a meeting of Church leaders, Justin Welby said he wanted "reconciliation", but that would mean "finding ways to disagree well".

Views range from liberals in the US - who do accept openly gay clergy - to conservatives in Africa, who refuse to.
