Britain's bishop of Durham Justin Welby poses for photographers after a news conference following the announcement he will become the next archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace in London, Friday, Nov. 9, 2012. The former oil executive with experience in conflict resolution has been chosen to lead a global Anglican Communion riven by sharply divided views on gay people and their place in the church. Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron announced Friday that Justin Welby, 56, a fast-rising priest with only a year's experience as a bishop, had been picked to succeed Rowan Williams as archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the world's 77 million Anglicans.
