CWN - February 05, 2013
Rt. Rev. Justin Welby, a father of six and onetime oil company executive who became an Anglican priest in 1992 and Bishop of Durham in 2011, was confirmed as Archbishop of Canterbury on February 4.
Welby delivered formal remarks for the occasion during a toast at a reception hosted by the Lord Mayor of London.
In comments made to reporters, Welby, who supports the ordination of women bishops but opposes the ordination of homosexual bishops, stated that he stood with the Anglican episcopate in its opposition to the legalization of same-sex marriage.
