Church may split over women bishops and gay priests, warns Rowan Williams
"The Archbishop of Canterbury warned yesterday that damaging infighting over women bishops and gay priests could result in a permanent split in the Anglican Communion.
"Dr Rowan Williams stressed that he did not want or relish the prospect of division. He called on the Church of England and Anglicans worldwide to step back from a betrayal of God's mission and to put the work of Christ before schism.
"But he conceded that, unless Anglicans could find a way to live with their differences over women bishops and homosexual ordination, the Church would change shape and become a multi-tier communion of different levels a schism in all but name."
