[10.04 GMT] As the Anglican row about sexuality rumbles on, and 'global south' primates seek a division of the Communion predicated on what they perceive to be their own unassailable rightness, other voices are making themselves heard -- rightly challenging the idea that there is a monopoly of tradition and exegetical wisdom in this group. The best known critics are from Africa -- including ex-Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and his successor in Cape Town. Nick Holtam, rector of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, has also written this very good open letter on the theological and ecclesial issues. Hat tip to Thinking Anglicans.
