    This is a difficult one for the CofE. I agree with Abp Welby on the gay issue. It was interesting and irritating that the Murdoch-owned Times newspaper lambasted the CofE over this, calling them "thoroughly nasty", yet never said a thing about the RC position (and Ratzinger was still Pope at the time). Since then Parliament has made it illegal for the CofE and the Church in Wales to conduct gay marriages (blessings are not covered by the legislation).
