'Homophobia' row over Bishop of Llandaff selection

From Wales (BBC)-

A gay clergyman has accused the Anglican Church in Wales of homophobia after he was rejected for a job as a bishop.

The Dean of St Albans, the Very Reverend Jeffrey John, was not chosen as the Bishop of Llandaff earlier this month.

A current bishop said it would be "too much of a headache" to appoint him, he claimed.
The Church in Wales "strongly denied" the accusations of homophobia.

Dr John said he had been told appointing him would be difficult because he was in a civil partnership, although celibate in line with Church teaching.
