Lambeth and gays

[The Washington Times] 14 Jul 2008--The world's Anglican bishops met for three weeks this summer for their once-every-10-years Lambeth Conference in Canterbury, England, and it's indicative of the low news value of that gathering that not one American newspaper sent over one of its staff writers to cover it.

I covered a Lambeth pre-event 30 years ago and covered the main event 20 years ago for the Houston Chronicle when there were a great number of journalists there to watch the debate on women's ordination. That was the big controversy in 1988.
