"Archbishop Rowan was apparently so furious about the first leak that he unilaterally vetoed Jeffrey's name, betraying his friend for a second time and handing an apparent victory to the conservatives who seem to be successfully controlling him.

Archbishop Rowan would have directed his anger in a more healthy direction if he had targeted the people inside and outside the Commission who have deliberately sabotaged its work."

--Colin Coward on reports that the Archbishop of Canterbury was going to nominate the first gay bishop in the Church of England last week before buckling under pressure from conservatives
