New Bishop for Durham doesn't seem to be controversial

There were murmurs of possibilities of a controversial new Bishop for Durham (succeeding +Justin when he moved to become ++Justin). But the announcement of +Paul Butler would appear not to be controversial. (H/T Joshua Bovis at Convictional Anglican).

As a headline this vies with the apocryphal 'Small earthquake in Chile; not many killed'. :)

"He seems to be quite controversial at Thinking Anglicans!"

That group/website always reminds me of the old joke:

'Mrs Smith, your husband is a very studious man.'
'What do you mean?'
'I saw him in the middle of the lake and I asked him what he was doing. He said, "I'm thinking."'
'Aaargh! Don't you know he has a lisp?!'

I'm trying to keep an open mind about him. At least he is no Jerry Falwell.
