Canterbury Unrepentant for Hosting Award Ceremony for Top Abortionist

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant:

The mother church of global Anglicanism has issued a statement defending its role in hosting an award ceremony that conferred a doctorate on leading British abortionist Ann Furedi.

“The event in question was nothing to do with the diocese [of Canterbury] or the wider Church of England,” the communiqué states.

It clarifies that Kent University, which conferred the doctorate, “regularly uses the Cathedral as one of a number of locations to host its graduation ceremonies,” and the “Cathedral does not have any involvement with the content of these events or their choice of honorary degree recipients.”

The cathedral statement, drafted as a rebuttal to a Jan. 14 Church Militant article, does not cite our story or provide a link to it.

However, an Anglican canon lawyer (who declined being named for this story) has debunked the statement as contradicting the Church of England’s own Canon Law as well as a violation of Cathedrals Measure 1999, enshrined in English law.
