The Tablet reports that Welby and Pope meet to review relations between Churches.

So Andrew Brown thinks Abp. Welby and Pope Francis are “outsiders”. An old boy and a Jesuit superior as outsiders. Nothing like accuracy in journalism.

Their common mistreatment of gays should give them some common ground to build upon. All these ABC’s kowtowing to Rome – why don’t they go?

What you do, do quickly.

I wonder if Pope Francis will be handing over his papal ring to Archbishop Justin as Paul VI did to Michael Ramsey?

Old Etonian. Archbishop of Caterbury. Outsider! It’s enough to make a cat laugh.

Anti-gay rhetoric will be solid common ground for both bishops, surely.

But begs the question : why bother ?

Beggars belief to see, in the video clip, Mrs Welby the wife of an Evangelical archbishop, wearing a black mantilla, like an old fashioned Spanish RC or parishioner in Eire in the last century !

JC Ryle and Cranmer would be calling out, “No popery !”
