Have any bishops on the Court other than Archbishop Malango commented on the Court’s process and decision? I am particularly interested in any comments from Bishop Mwamba of Botswana.

Anna – keep an eye on tomorrow’s Church Times. There was a split vote with several bishops supporting Fr Henderson ……

Thanks, Martin. Is this the article in question? It mentions, but does not name, bishops who dissented from the decision.

I ask because I had a conversation with +Mwamba that touched on the Lake Malawi situation a while ago. I got the impression he thought the kerfluffle was ridiculous and unfortunate and disagreed with ++Malango, but was interested to see if he felt strongly enough to dissent officially.

I will try and get you the list of those who voted for Fr Henderson, Anna, I thought the story would be clearer in this.
