Dean of Bangor Bans Lord Carey

This is one of those mornings when so much interesting is happening in the Anglican world that I hardly know where to focus.

But this takes the cake: the Dean of Bangor, The Very Liberal Reverend Alun Hawkins, has banned the past Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, from Bangor Cathedral for supposedly being “divisive.”

I’m at a loss for words, but “extraordinary” is a very Anglican and appropriate one here. So much for “tolerance.”

Ruth Gledhill adds a lot of color (and a great cartoon!) here.

(Hmmm, I wonder if I can get banned in Bangor.)
