comment In the Anglican Church, how is the Archbishop appointed?
P.S. Please stop voting for this answer. Greg's is much better.

I thought it was the other way round, that the Dean and Chapter voted on who to recommend to the Sovereign, who then appointed their choice

I knew you knew that. Just leaving the comment for future readers.

To be a little nitpicky, I don't believe there is any biblical argument against vegetarianism; if a person chooses to be a vegetarian, there is nothing in Christianity saying that would be wrong. There are arguments saying that it is OK to choose to eat meat.

comment Was the Last Supper not the Passover meal?
I think I supplied references from three Gospels to indicate that it was a Passover meal. Do you have anything from the Bible to indicate that it wasn't a Passover meal? Note that I'm already aware that it was done on a different day, and that Jesus did things that wouldn't normally be done at a Passover meal. That's the point. It's how we treat those two facts that make this a lesson.

comment Why did Daniel consider the allotment of food and wine to be wrong for him to eat?
Do you have a reference about the food being offered to idols?

Whether or not it would have been offered to idols, the food would not have been prepared according to Jewish dietary laws ('kosher' as we would say now). Most of the laws are about meat and fish, so vegetables and water would probably be OK, however they were prepared.

The Constitution of the CofA says they can use whatever method they decide. I guess names will be proposed, there will be discussion, and they vote.

comment What Christian denominations do not require belief in mainstream Christian core doctrines?
I just wanted to add the name of a denomination that definitely doesn't care whether you believe in the Trinity or the Deity of Jesus, won't be restrictive about other beliefs, and is found in almost every town in the world - Quakers.
