Why, as the church's chief minister, did he not uphold the church's canon law? Canon C 4.1 states: "Every bishop shall take care that he admit no person into holy orders but such as he knows either by himself, or by sufficient testimony ... to be of good repute and such as to be a wholesome example and pattern to the flock of Christ."
Is it any wonder that the established church of the nation is reputed to be losing 300 members a week when its most senior leaders are so prevaricating.
