Archbishop of York rejects the authority of the Bible and the teaching of the church

During General Synod, Andrea Williams proposed an amendment inserting the words "as revealed in the Bible and the taught by the church" to a motion calling for politicians to "prioritise the common good of all people."

Andrea spoke on the need for the Bible to inform our understanding of the common good. She also proposed another amendment to the motion calling for the protection of life, the promotion of marriage and family and the maintaining of Christian freedoms.

Both amendments were rejected by Synod, with the Archbishop of York John Sentamu replying: "If you’re going to serve the whole community please don’t limit our language…The Word became flesh and sadly we are now making it Word, Word and Word again. Resist the amendments."
