To Anglicans: What are you waiting for?

Time to come home to Rome, where the truth is preserved about the sacrament of marriage.

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has delivered the final blow to any semblance of moral teaching in his church; he said that homosexual acts are not only acceptable, but means of the grace of God.
As he said, "it all began with the Lambeth Conference of 1930" when the Anglican Church was the FIRST church to accept birth control. Once you divorce marriage from procreation, all sorts of perversions of God's will for marriage will inevitably follow.
He says: “I concluded that an active sexual relationship between two people of the same sex might therefore reflect the love of God in a way comparable to marriage, if and only if it had about it the same character of absolute covenanted faithfulness.” Although written before he became Archbishop of Canterbury in 2002, Dr Williams describes his view in the letters as his “definitive conclusion” reached after 20 years of study and prayer. He refers to it as his “conviction”.

Asking Anglicans to come "home" to Rome, implies that Rome could be home. Even those of us who dislike this comment of +Rowan's, are in a better place than we would be in Roman Catholicism - where we would be bound to believe all kinds of bizarre and unscriptural things because a Pope tells us to. At least we are free to disagree with the Archbishop of Canterbury!
