Comments: Rochester demonstration planned

Doctor Nazir-Ali is a convert from Catholicism and not Islam. Why protest? Why aren't they contacting the Jordanian Muslim Council and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel asking for clarifications from GAFCON?

Rochester? IDAHO?

As an American, this story is very confusing...

[Am slightly less confused than "+Michael Roffen", however. "The Bible and the Church teach that the proper expression of our sexuality is in the context of marriage": on THIS day, as a native CALIFORNIAN, I could not agree more! Alleluia! :-D]

Lots of steps up to the west door to handle plenty of picketers as I remember. And up to the rood screen as well. Sits on a rise, the entire structure, built over something else.

Should be handy.

This sounds like poor dear +Priddis.

"The day will also see Kent Police relaunch a telephone line to report homophobic acts…"

Just in time for Lambeth. How reassuring!

The UK government itself issued a press release about IDAHO, see

One item in it must have really pleased Archbishop Peter Jensen:

“As part of our consular activities overseas, in some countries the Foreign Office conducts civil partnerships for British nationals, as I recently saw for myself in attending the 143rd civil partnership conducted by the British Consulate-General in Sydney.”
