Archbishop of Canterbury calls on Christian groups to be more tolerant after revealing he receives 'poison pen letters' from co-religionists

From The Independent-

The Archbishop of Canterbury has called on Christian groups to be more tolerant towards each other and other faiths after revealing the worst “poison pen letters” he receives are from his co-religionists.

The leader of the Anglican church made the criticism in a broad-ranging speech in which he called on religious leaders to confront the “profound differences” between their faiths or risk allowing extremism to flourish.

The Most Reverend Justin Welby said there was a mismatch between Britain’s view of itself as an “inclusive” society in which the presence of others is passively accepted and the need for “secure tolerance” in which religions - and communities - were actively engaged with one another.

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, rarely speaks up for those LGBTI Anglicans/others who are demeaned, demonized and worse at the Anglican Communion, Global South Provinces. His ¨shocked and horrified¨ sounding words regarding lack of tolerance are of his own making/faking!
