Nick Holtam next Bishop of Salisbury
News today that Nick Holtam is to be the next Bishop of Salisbury. He will be the first bishop married to a divorcee to be appointed, although I think there are those who have married divorcees after their appointment. Nick Holtam is Liberal Catholic, a member of Inclusive Church and his appointment has been welcomed by liberals. He supported Changing Attitude in holding their 10th anniversary at St Martin's in the Fields and welcomed Gene Robinson to attend. Not everyone is happy, but I pray he sticks to his principles.
