The new Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt Rev Justin Welby has been confirmed into his role in a ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral. Shortly before being confirmed he said the Church's opposition to gay marriage was not a controversial issue for the majority global community of Anglicans. He said:
"The Government wants it, we think there are issues around the way it is going forward, it is not a collision course, no, it is just part of the normal discussions that one has. We have made our views clear, and they have made their views clear."
