[The Most Rev. R.] Williams has been trying to steer an even course, managing so far to keep saber rattling conservatives and liberals clamoring for change, from splitting. Last month nearly half of the church's 38 primates accused Williams of failing to steer the church on a conservative path and denounce any acceptance of gays within the faith.

Already a number of bishops and priests have said they will defy the directive.====== I really do not see how our Church is going to be able to stay together unless the Archibishop of Canterbury steps up to take a difinitive stand, one way or the other. WIth all of the provinces fighting each other as much as they are, no agreement between them will come quickly. It will be up to the Archbishop if any this is to end. I know that people will say the Archbishop shouldn't take more power in the Church leadership, but I really do feel as though that will be the only way that any sort of conclusion will come to this current controversy. You know... I haven't heard anything from the Queen about this either. She is "keeper and defender of the faith" still, right? Why hasn't anyone heard from her? She needs to speak up to. I just think the current leadership won't say anything, because they are afraid of offending someone. Whatever happens... someone or some body within the Communion is going to be offended or get upset. There is no way that the Archibishop is going to be able to keep playing this game of trying to make everyone happy. It just will not work.
