Posted on 06/05/2018 6:46:16 PM PDT by marshmallow
The principal leader of the Church of England has declared the European Union (EU) the greatest dream realised for human beings since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, made the statement in a speech to the General Assembly of the Conference of European Churches (CEC) in Serbia on Sunday.
[The EU] has brought peace, prosperity, compassion for the poor and weak, purpose for the aspirational, and hope for all its people, he claimed.
He also highlighted how there are Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and many of no faith at all in European now, arguing:
That diversity is one of the gifts of the Europe of the EU, but to live with that diversity must call for the gift of reconciliation through the church.
Returning to Brexit, he seemed to link the vote to bigotry, attacking the rise of Euroscepticism, the flames of which are fanned by scare stories about migration and refugees, according to the Church Times.

Diversity = not excellence
It's the "if you don't agree with me, you are a bigot" excuse. Does anyone have a list of all the positions you must take in order to not be called a bigot?
Diversity- the elimination of the white race.
Good to see that the Anglicans can still give Francis a run for his money.
Methinks the Bishop is a little too enthusiastic about human institutions...
Attila the Hun brought plenty of diversity.
I hope Francis is not taking notes.
Taking notes? Francis wrote the book.
I am about as sick of one word (diversity) as person can get.
The next one on the list of words that should be banned is ‘multi-cultural’.
Ah, wonderful! Now, about those 3 dead babies...
(rip: Alfie, Isaiah, Charlie)
Okay, so you have slaves again ?
Very well stated, because it is, the
Roman Empire arising. One of the _glorious_ beast empires.
The EU’s legacy is the invasion of Europe by hordes of homicidal savages.
Diversity Means Less White People.
Here is a great example of moronic cultural relativism. This is perfect information to help explain the death throes of the Anglican Church.
The Archbishop’s quotes make no mention of Jesus Christ, God, nor the Holy Spirit.
These Anglican Church dudes have completely lost the thread, and forgotten their supposed role in life.
This religion, rooted in moral relativism and political whims, is doomed.
Ancient Rome was a giant, repulsive sh!thole.
Not something to model modern society after.
Apart from that, what have the Romans EVER done for us?

The US with the help of its NATO partners, and the brave Polish people (and a Polish Pope) brought peace to Europe. The EU didn't exist at the time, even though there have been a series of different orgs with different names and treaties going back to the early Postwar period. Welby's an ***hole and liar. Thanks marshmallow.
