The current Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, Australia is Kanishka Raffel, who took up this role on 28th May, 2021.
Kanishka Raffel is not white. He is of Sri Lankan descent, having Sri Lankan parents.
Kanishka Raffel was born in London on 6th November, 1964. Subsequently, he lived in Canada and then moved to Australia in 1972.
Kanishka Raffel did not become a follower of Jesus Christ until he was 21 years of age, having been raised as a Buddhist.
Kanishka Raffel was voted as the Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney by an overwhelming majority of the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, comprising the votes of ministers of churches in the diocese and the votes of other members of the Synod.
Receiving an underwhelming minority of the votes of the Synod for the role of the Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney was the Bishop of South Sydney, Michael Stead, who is white, who was born in Australia and who became a follower of Jesus Christ as a child as a result of his grandmother taking him to Sunday school.
The Anglican church was formerly known as the Church of England. England is a country that predominantly contains white people. White people are the real descendants of Jacob and the Israelites living on the earth today.
It is not appropriate for a non-white follower of Jesus Christ like Kanishka Raffel, who only came to faith in Jesus Christ in the first place as a result of immigrating to the white country of Australia, to occupy the highest office of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney of the Archbishop and lead white followers of Jesus Christ in Sydney.
