Canterburian irony

Rowan Williams, recently retired Archbishop of Canterbury, of The Church of England, had this to say about quarrels in the American branch of his church:

 I should feel a great deal happier, I must say, if those who are most eloquent for a traditionalist view in the United States showed a fuller understanding of the need to regard the bishop and the diocese as the primary locus of ecclesial identity rather than the abstract reality of the ‘national church.’”

This from a man appointed by the government of the UK to head the first 'national church' in Western Christendom.
