New Dean of St Albans - early evening update

Following this morning’s official announcement from Downing Street of Dr John’s appointment the St Albans diocesan website carries statements made at the press conference in St Albans, a number of responses to the appointment and a letter that the diocesan bishop has sent to the clergy.

Several online newspapers are already carrying articles written since the announcement, although, since the story was accurately leaked several days ago, they have little new to say.

The Telegraph has Gay cleric takes senior Anglican post.

Reuters has Gay priest given senior church post.

The BBC has Gay cleric takes up senior post.

The Scotsman has Gay Cleric Takes Up Senior Post and, later, Gay Churchman Promoted Dean Offers Olive Branch.

Outside Britain, the Mail and Guardian in South Africa and the Providence Journal in Rhode Island have stories.
