(Daily Mail) Archbishop blindfolded by rebels with Kalashnikovs on jungle mercy mission
Dr Welby, currently the Bishop of Durham, was ordained in 1992 after a successful career as an oil industry executive.
He was working in the small Warwickshire town of Southam when he was headhunted for his role on church peace missions, which set him on the road to Lambeth Palace.
Canon Andrew White, who led the International Centre for Reconciliation at nearby Coventry Cathedral, talent-spotted Welby after visiting him at his vicarage.
Canon White, who is now based in Baghdad, said: ‘It was obvious that he was of a different calibre from everyone else. He was a man who could make things happen.

Wow, so we’ve got ABC 007, sans the gun! Not bad! Even though he appears to be a little guy, I think he’s qualified to draw himself up to full stature in the face of the uber-libs and uber-cons and say, “You don’t scare me one bit!” and they’d better believe him! I would love to see him gain compliance from +KJS and some of the less-endearing Global South grumblies!

I wouldn’t, as the two things are mutually opposing, unless by “gain compliance” Teatime means kicking the TEC heretics out, in which case the “Global South grumblies” would no longer be resistant to being in the same organization as with those who clearly and publicly promote grossly heretical acts.
A number of other “grumblies” [by which I assume that Teatime means “those who believe that the Church should not allow people in leadership to promote and cheer on and enact grossly heretical practices”] would be no longer resistant either.
That’s the only way I can conceive that “grumblies” [sic] might be “compliant.” Hopefully there will be no other way for Bishop Welby to “gain compliance” from us.
