“But what is important, actually, is not to simply look at the past because they are going to be standing in the Abbey taking these wonderful vows: ‘for better for worse; for richer for poorer; in sickness and in health; till death us do part.’”

As you could imagine, some of Dr. John Sentamu’s colleagues are criticizing his words. And not because that’s the princess he’s reportedly talking about. They think he was a bit soft on Anglican doctrine.
