    The Archbishop of Canterbury certainly knows how to invoke the Glory of God in his condemnation of child abuse. Is it not time, however. that he speak plainly about female genital mutilation, child marriage, honor killings of young girls, the rape and murder of young females etc., etc. in Britain and elsewhere. Stop the platitudes and honestly speak about what is going on . Is this too much to ask of the Archbishop and the church.
