En­voy who dis­putes res­ur­rec­tion urged to quit

Nelson Mail - - World -

Se­nior Angli­cans are call­ing on the Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, to force his am­bas­sador to the Vat­i­can to re­sign be­cause he does not be­lieve Je­sus rose from the dead. It has emerged Dr John Shep­herd, an Aus­tralian cleric ap­pointed last week as the new rep­re­sen­ta­tive to Rome, had de­liv­ered a ser­mon in which he said Chris­tians should be ‘‘set free’’ from the tra­di­tional view of the res­ur­rec­tion. The con­tro­ver­sial com­ments were de­liv­ered while he was Dean of Perth’s St Ge­orge’s Cathe­dral.
