Awww, we were just talking about you today, ABC...

Funny, that.

Either way, eh.  The Episcopal Church essentially gave him the holy finger when they continued to ordain gay priests, so I'm fine with this.  The Anglican Church has become a bit too much like the big entity it broke off from.

So the Church that was established to redefine marriage is threating to leave the government that created it because of gay marriage.

Ironbite-I'll be over here laughing my tail off.

Alas for Robin, he doesn't actually have the authority to do this :D It's the parliament that decides that.

Is it bad if, for a second, I thought that the subject said "Rowan Atkinson"?
Not any worse than when I thought it said "Robin Williams."

 He's just grandstanding. Not like we will get gay marriage anyway, it's going to end up just another broken promise by Cameron and his cronies.

Why yes, I am very cynical about our government.

The Archbishop has a cunning plan. (yeah, I know that was Tony Robinson's character's line, just grin and bear it.)
