Of course, to Williams biblical data seems to hold little value. He has not stepped forward as a biblical champion on any doctrinal issue, particularly not speaking prophetically against homosexual alliances. Therefore, it would no doubt be just as well for soul-health if the Vatican gave up any chance whatsoever to link up with Anglicanism in its present apostate state.
It might be imagined that at this point Williams would finally remember his principles and intervene. And intervene he does. He warns the Americans of their duty not to offend the Africans, and lobbies parliament for exemptions from UK anti-discrimination legislation to ensure that all church schools will have the right to maintain a consistent anti-homosexual ethos. And under his leadership the Church of England itself is becoming increasingly active in the persecution and expulsion of its own homosexual membership, with sanctions imposed against everyone from homosexual clergy to homosexual godparents, with no rebuke or restraint of any kind imposed on those who continue open campaigns against all gay people and their supporters
I’ve been critical of Rowan Williams myself at times. But if he’s getting it in the neck from both wings of the church, i suspect he may be getting things about right.
