Some remarkable cogency from the Archbishop of Canterbury

Justin Welby
Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has said in a sermon that new family structures, including same sex marriages, are now a reality “whether we agree or not.” At the same time Welby dismissed the idea of a Victorian golden age of family values as a “myth.” The important takeaway is that the Archbishop acknowledges that we do not require anyone's moral approval.

As Archbishop of Canterbury, Welby is the principal leader of the Church of England as well as its senior bishop. He is also the symbolic head of the Anglican Church worldwide.

Welby argued against same-sex marriage in the House of Lords but by all accounts he has “evolved.” In August he told the Greenbelt Christian festival that he was “constantly consumed with horror” at the way in which the Church had treated gay people.
