Archbishop of Canterbury warns that Anglican Church may 'not hold together' over conflicting views

From The Independent UK-

The Archbishop of Canterbury has warned that parts of the Anglican Communion could break away as a result of the conflicting views held by other churches.

In a series of frank remarks to The Times, the Most Rev Justin Welby said there could be “a sort of temporary separation” and admitted to personally disagreeing “profoundly” with views held by other churches within the union.

“I think, realistically, we’ve got to say that despite all efforts there is a possibility that we will not hold together, or not hold together for a while,” he said.

“I could see circumstances in which there could be people moving apart and then coming back together, depending on what else happens.”

I think, Justin Welby, the ABC is very alert. He need only look to the ACNC to see that DIVISION has already occured (thieving/worse over a decade) He seems to think (I watched his interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN International) that proper speech and restraint/good manners will SAVE THE LIVES of LGBTI Anglican Communion (not Anglican Church) HUMAN BEINGS in Nigeria and Uganda. It's dandy for him to pretend all-wise, house-broken and tasteful but not on our history of immediate suffering (and it is)! He loves to chat about his business experience negotiating ¨conflict difference¨...however, talking about it is NOT doing it. Posturing is not walking the walk! Tiresome/irresponsible and feckless.
