That blathering fool is supposed to step down “in December”, but true to form, he is waiting until the last dog is dead, while still yammering about his farcical interpretation of, I wouldn’t call it Anglicanism, and am not even sure that it passes for Christianity.
Hopefully he will retire to Stonehenge, to spend his time running around the woods naked with flowers in his hair, while trying to achieve magical flight.
He has done more to lead the dead and dying into oblivion than the next five hundred vampires.
What can he mean?
Possibly he thinks another stake through the heart is all that is required?
Go preen you beard Rowan...the Lord is watching you.
him and his ilk are destroying “Christianity” in order to make it “relevent”
idiots are making it pointless.
The Church of Worshipping Human Society is not Christianity
Not that he has not tried hard to kill it off.
Christianity is doing fine. Anglicanism, not so much.
It is long past time that the Church of England severed all ties with the British government.
A servant can not serve two masters. The Church of England can not faithfully serve the One True God and serve the secular government of Britain at the same time.
The bulk of The C of Es income comes from the British Treasury it is therefore truly a servant of the government. The C of E is tasked to run a church that serves the purposes of government.
Consequently as the leaders of government became more and secular so did the church to the detriment of the church and its followers.
If the C of E is to be come once more the servant of God then it must break with the government and once more be the Sheppard of Gods flock on Earth and not the tool of ungodly men.
I dunno. Looks pretty dead to me. I have a hard time finding a proud, devout, practicing Anglican.
>> Christianity was still relevant in Britain despite falling numbers of believers. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who leads the global 80-million-strong Anglican Communion, said in his Christmas day sermon that the answer to the question of whether Christianity had "had its day" was a "resounding no". <<
Christianity is still relevant in England, Anglicanism isn't. You can designate yourself the "official church" all you want, it won't change the fact nobody attends your services.
>> The Church of England narrowly voted against allowing women bishops last month - to the dismay of Williams and Prime Minister David Cameron - in a move its leaders said risked undermining its role as the established church in society with clerics in parliament's upper chamber. <<
Underminded it's role in parliament? GOOD. The idea that a "free country" would give some totally discredited "church" seats in Parliament SOLELY because it's guaranteed such clout in the Constitution is appalling. Though I don't see all the liberals screaming about "separation of church and state!!" ever criticize England for having an ACTUAL theocracy (or Muslim countries for that matter). Yet they go ballistic when church officials that DON'T have constitutionally enshrined government offices speak their minds about political issues. Go figure.
>> The media, many politicians and some members of the public have criticized the Church of England for failing to allow women bishops and for failing to back government plans for gay marriage at a time when it is under pressure to modernize. <<
Again, where's the "SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!" crowd? Oh that's right, it's OK to have churches get involved in "government affairs" if it helps advance a liberal cause, right?
>> In separate comments aired on Tuesday but recorded earlier, the Roman Catholic Church's leader in England and Wales, Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols, said the government's plans to allow gay marriage were a "shambles" and had no mandate. <<
Nah, can't be. Protestants on FR keep telling me that Catholic officials are sooooo much more liberal than protestant churches. Certainly news to Christians in Europe, though.
>> No religious organization or cleric will be forced to conduct gay weddings under the plans <<
Hmmm. Sounds familiar...
"Removing immigration quotas will not flood western countries with third world immigrants"
"Legalizing abortion won't result in abortion on demand or forcing people morally against it to pay for one"
"Income taxes will ONLY affect the richest citizens and extremely affaluent corporate CEOs, most people will never have to pay income taxes in their life"
This fag is delusional.
