Has Gene Robinson been prohibited from preaching in England?

Yours truly said yes. Apparently, I’m wrong as Conger neatly pointed out a while back.

A press officer confirmed on May 2 that Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams had not issued Bishop Robinson a license to officiate in the Province of Canterbury. However, Church of England canon law does not grant the archbishop the authority to ban preachers, the spokesman noted.

Mea culpa extraordinaire.

So this leaves us with the following issues:

  1. I need to do some better homework next time
  2. Regardless, Gene Robinson still doesn’t have a licence to officiate in the province.
  3. Inclusive Church / Integrity / Changing Attitude still won’t tell us who’s presiding at the Eucharist just outside St Stephen’s Church, Canterbury this Sunday.

It’s been well over 24 hours now. I’ve got nothing to hide. I’m quite happy to tell the truth about what I did and didn’t get right. Shame we can’t say the same about those happy inclusive liberals.

Let’s go to bed with a quote shall we?

The "H" word is not homosexuality, but honesty

Guess who said that? Ahhh…. you know don’tcha?
