Sentamu for Archbishop of Canterbury

In The Independent you can find this article, which includes:

Among the slightly more liberal clergymen who have been suggested are the Bishop of Norwich, Graham Jones, and James Jones, the Bishop of Liverpool. The media-savvy John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, is also a strong contender and would probably appeal to the secular masses despite his opposition to gay marriage. However, he is a divisive figure within the church and has a powerful lobby of detractors who are often nicknamed the ABYs – Anyone But Yorks. 

So . . .  media savvy means "a man who can't quite complete a sentence".   This is a man who is so spiritual that making sense to thinking people is not on the agenda.  See this post for one of the reasons why I hold this opinion.

From a secular disestablishmentarian point of view, John Sentamu would clearly be the best choice as the new leader of the Anglican Church.  With him at the helm, the Anglican ship would be heading inexorably for the rocks, and I can't think of a better way for it to die.

It is high time that it was put out of its misery.

Call mean ABABY - Anyone But Anyone But Yorks!
