Archbishop John Sentamu appears to be moving to disown his earlier somewhat 'frosty' attitude towards homosexuality; whilst this is welcome, it remains to be seen how this will affect practical policies within the CoE - for example, the CoE's exemption from recent employment discrimination laws which outlaw discrimination against homosexuals in employment, or the disgraceful treatment meted out to the former Canon Jeffrey John when he had been nominated as a Bishop. Of course, no-one likes to be called nasty names, but the old saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" springs immediately to mind. I can live with nasty names, but it's the Sticks and stones in the form of the discriminatory policies of various kinds that the CoE still indulges in that need to stop. NOW!
Note: This post also appears as the 3rd UPDATE of a post yesterday (here), but I wanted to include it in a new post to high-light it, and my reaction to this news, more clearly.
