Rowan Williams, the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury, is officially enthroned as the new head of the Anglican church. Williams' well-known liberal attitudes on topics like homosexuality and female priests result in numerous protests, though Rowan Williams will make a point of not using his position and power to advance his own personal views.
