How to pick a Primate of your very own

This is a snippet from the Anglican Journal.

Meanwhile, a former Canadian Anglican bishop who is now licensed by the Southern Cone said that the network contacted other foreign primates as possible leaders but aligned itself with the British-born Archbishop Venables because of his background.

“We did talk to a couple of primates of different colours,” said Bishop Donald Harvey, formerly of the diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, in an interview. But Archbishop Venables was willing to take on the job, is well respected by other primates, and brings few cultural barriers and no language limitations, he said.

End of snippet.

But I have a suggestion. The best primate if you are shopping for one to jump to so you can "have it your way" so to speak, would be a dead one. Then you not only don't have to worry about cultural barriers, language limitations, or racism and even better you don't have to worry about the troublesome issue of someone potentially telling you what you have to do!

Imagine a search for a primate that doesn't include theology or commitment to Christ. Amazing. How convenient that he speaks English.
