Description

LONDON – A Ugandan-born cleric who opposes gay priests in the Anglican church and is a foe of the U.S.-led war in Iraq was named Friday as the first black archbishop in the nearly 500-year history of the Church of England. The Rt. Rev. John Sentamu, 56, bishop of Birmingham, was appointed by the British government as archbishop of York, the church’s second-highest position after Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who leads the global Anglican communion.
