Hurray for the Arch!

Ok, so news travels slow, but it seems that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, deserves some credit for his interview with a Dutch journalist back in August. According to the report in the Telegraph, which Rob passed on to us today, he has come out to say that homosexuals must change their behaviour if they are to be welcomed into the church.

[Which also provides an interesting aside for my current research, into the difference, in his words, between 'welcome' and 'inclusion']

But isn't it good to have some straight talking (no pun intended) by the senior leadership of the church, in upholding the Biblical basis and ethics of the church? Let's hope more follow in his stead.
