He responded in a message to the Church Times saying: "I have read Archbishop Akinola's letter. Without going into details of the content, I would like to make it clear that I was not present when that letter was written, so I did not take part in its conception. It is sad what is going on."

November 10 2005 By virtueonline Williams, Robinson meet, CofE Evangelicals furious, ECUSA dioceses in trouble

The uproar that ensued was predictable. British evangelicals excoriated Dr. Williams for his action, but a report that said evangelicals in the Diocese of London had asked London Bishop Richard Chartres to prevent Robinson from speaking was inaccurate.

It is Bishop John Howard's worst nightmare come true. The Rev. Jim McCaslin, rector of All Souls in Jacksonville, told VirtueOnline that the bishop has said he is convinced that this is one of the strongest -- potentially THE strongest -- dioceses in our church and in our communion.
