Archishop of Canterbury insists it is not wishy-washy to accommodate people with different views as the Church of England grapples with homosexuality and women bishops
The Archbishop of Canterbury has told the Church of England it may have to accept changes many members do not like for the sake of unity as it prepares for a battle over wedding-like blessing services for gay couples.
The Most Rev Justin Welby acknowledged that many Anglicans would view it as guilty of betrayal and even apostasy if it implements a landmark Church report which includes a recommendation to hold special services honouring same-sex relationships.
But he warned that others would see the Church as increasingly irrelevant and promoting attitudes akin to racism over its response.

Not ‘wishy-washy’- just unBiblical and unChristian.....
Are we now seeing the beginning signs of the great apostasy?
I believe we are.
My response is, “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
So, God is raciss when He tells anyone who cares to listen that He forbids sexual immorality to such an extent that He cannot grant eternal life to anyone who practices it.
See Revelation 22:15
The bible tells us the world will always find the church irrelevant. The Gospel is an offense to the world. Changing the Church or doctrine to accomodate the world is what Peter and Jude directed some of the harshest invective in scripture against. Just read Chapter 2 of 2 Peter.
Actually, the opposite is true. The more the Church attempts to be "just like the rest of the world", the less relevant it becomes.
‘Not wishy-washy?” “In the name of unity?” hahaha, what kind of thinking is that? It will blow all the last few true believers totally out of the CofE.
Are we unified in the Spirit of the Living God or are we unified in the spirit of man's rebellion against our Creator?
The church must focus like a laser on the health affects of sodomites! I do not know about other nations but our Center for Disease Control has explicit warnings about sodomy. The American Red Cross will not allow sodomites to donate blood! As long as these organizations can "discriminate" against sodomites then so should the church. The reason the sodomites will not picket these organizations and rail against them is that they know that it will expose the truth of their deathstyle. In the current stage of the pro-sodomy movement they are operating on people's emotions. They cannot allow the health effect facts to be presented. That is why the church should solely focus like a laser on the health effects of sodomy.
Homosexuality is a disease just like alcoholism, drug addiction etc. I has to be dealt with the same way.
