    The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has rejected calls to scrap the Church of England’s transgender guidance which affirms children as young as five in gender confusion. In an open letter to the Archbishop, Christian parents Nigel and Sally Rowe had called on the Church of England (CofE) to urgently scrap its ‘Valuing All God’s Children’ (VAGC) guidance which covers 4,700 CofE primary schools. The letter was sent following the Rowes’ legal victory against the Department for Education (DfE) in September 2022, which led to a £22,000 settlement for legal costs and a commitment from the government to reform its...

    The Archbishop of Canterbury says he doesn’t understand why so many Christians in the U.S. support President Donald Trump.

    Is the West waking up, or is it hoping too much? And is it too late anyway, when the genocide is accomplished? The Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev Justin Welby, has called on the UK government to offer asylum to thousands of Iraqi Christians driven from their homes by jihadists. He backed similar calls by several bishops. The vicar of Baghdad's Anglican church, Canon Andrew White, said the believers' flight is bringing "the end of Christianity very near" in Iraq. France has already done what the Archbishop proposes. Last week the country declared itself ready to give asylum to...
