The Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam, compared bishops opposing marriage reforms to 18th century Christians who believed slavery was "God-given."

These jackasses do not even know their own glorious history.

It was Anglicans of the 18th Century who led the fight against slavery that resulted in the abolition of the European Slave Trade. Surely their finest hour.
