Listen towards the end of the press conference as we hear Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan repeat his courageous call - and the call of his province - for the resignation of the Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire.
In fact, Archbishop Daniel (who, along with the Archbishop of Nigeria, was nearly barred earlier this week from entering Egypt for the Primates Meeting) tells the media -- to what appears to be the Archbishop of Brisbane's alarm -- that this issue has indeed come up for discussion amongst the primates.
This repeated call comes after an intensive lobbying effort by The Episcopal Church (USA) last summer at Lambeth to court the Church in the Sudan into quiet compliance. Despite the major crisis of epic proportions in his country which he speaks to earlier in this press conference, Archbishop Daniel does not back down from his biblical convictions, even now.
Archbishop Phillip Aspinall quickly moves the press conference to a hasty conclusion after Archbishop Daniel's surprise remarks.
We don't think the media are assembled in Egypt just to listen to talk about global warming.
