Archbishop dismayed at misinterpretation over Windsor report -10/12/04

The Archbishop responsible for the production of the Windsor Report which was aimed at dealing with splits in the Anglican communion over homosexuality, has expressed his "dismay" that remarks he made in a telephone interview with the Church of England Newspaper have been "taken out of context". The Church of England Newspaper, which has strong links with conservative groups opposed to the ordination of the gay bishop Gene Robinson, said the Archbishop "had signalled" that the American Church was never likely to face discipline for its decision to consecrate the Anglican Communionís first practising gay bishop, Gene Robinson.
