Pope's gambit could see 1,000 quit Church of England
Ruth Gledhill and Richard Owen
"As many as 1,000 priests could quit the Church of England and thousands more may leave churches in America and Australia under bold proposals to welcome Anglicans to Rome.
"Entire parishes and even dioceses could be tempted to defect after Pope Benedict XVI's decision to offer a legal structure to Anglicans joining the Roman Catholic Church.
"His decree, issued yesterday, is a serious blow to attempts by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, to save the Anglican Communion from further fragmentation and threatens to wreck decades of ecumenical dialogue."
