Exactly the intelligent response I would expect from a primate.

Exactly. That title makes him sound like an ape. Perhaps with reason—and this is a comment on intelligence, not race. It is sad that so many people who claim to follow their Christ are so full of hatred for others also created by their so-called god.

This guy is particularly childish. If the church does not do what he wants, he and his mentally and morally challenged followers will take their marbles and go home.

That's exactly what I thought when reading the headline, that a great ape was annoyed with the Church of England on its new more enlightened take on fellow humans. Come to think, most church leaders ARE ape like, only wanting to eat bananas with their feet and tossing poo at those they don't approve of. I'm sure the good "Primate" looks adorable on his tire swing.

And, have you ever been to a carnival or circus when the man with the hurdy gurdy has a trained monkey in an cute little coat and cap and the little monkey will accept a coin and shove it into the hurdy gurdy man's container. That is what most churches are about, getting an ape to collect money and shove it into the church's bigger container. All the poor deluded congregation gets is a tip of the bigger ape's hat. About as useful as the little monkey's thank you also, is what the poor saps who pour good money into the church's greedy hands.

If he is a primate, he belongs in a zoo with the monkeys.
