Archbiship of Canterbury: “I Could Have Done More”
The Telegraph interview was his most candid acceptance of personal blame for the rift over homosexuality, he added.
Dr Williams said that during his 10-year tenure he had “at various points, disappointed both conservatives and liberals”.
“Most of them are quite willing to say so quite loudly,” he added.
One of the biggest crises he had faced was the split between traditionalists and liberals over the ordination in the US of the first openly gay bishop, Gene Robinson.
“Thinking back over things I don’t think I’ve got right over the last 10 years, I think it might have helped a lot if I’d gone sooner to the United States when things began to get difficult about the ordination of gay bishops, and engaged more directly with the American House of Bishops,” he said.
