Archbishop of Canterbury says the Church of England needs a miracle to solve its long-running row over gay rights

From The Daily Mail-

The Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday that the Church of England will need a miracle from the Holy Spirit to solve its long-running row over gay rights.

The Most Reverend Justin Welby said the divisions cannot be healed by human hands but only by divine intervention.

His remarks indicate deepening desperation among Anglican leaders over the irreconcilable gap between liberals who demand gay equality within the Church and conservative evangelicals who say that gay sex is sinful.

The Archbishop made his unusual and heartfelt reference to the need for a miracle in a paper on the CofE’s attitude to sexuality written with his most senior colleague, the Archbishop of York, the Most Reverend John Sentamu.
