It was only in 1969 that new Church of England canon law lifted the ban on anyone who was born illegitimate becoming a bishop, let alone an archbishop.“I believe,” said Lord Chorley, “It was the then Lord Archbishop of Canterbury who persuaded your Lordships that it would be a dangerous innovation.” Archbishop of Canterbury Randall Davidson won the day in 1926 – possibly against the grain of public opinion, given that Lord Chorley also noted there was “a great deal of opposition” from MPs in the Commons – including from Winston Churchill, whose last private secretary would go on to father Mr Welby.Nor has the current Archbishop of Canterbury been spared his own struggles with “newfangleness.” It took years of controversy before the General Synod voted to allow women bishops in November 2014.And the issue of gay marriage is still causing Mr Welby problems.He opposed the Same Sex Marriage Bill in 2013, telling the House of Lords that if it became law: “The idea as marriage as covenant is diminished; the family in its normal sense, and as our base community of society is weakened.” A few weeks later, however, he was telling the General Synod that he, his fellow bishops and other opponents of the bill had been “utterly overwhelmed.” He was, he insisted, not proposing gay marriages in churches, “But we must accept that there is a revolution in the area of sexuality.” Some in his audience approved, or criticised him for not going further.
