  • James Strong

    I’ve just been over to Guido’s and seen that some of the comments near the top are vitriolic about same-sex marriage.
    Why on earth should we, or anyone really, care how people arrange their long-term partnerships?

    But it would be wrong to force the Church to carry out the ceremony if that idea ever comes up.

    The ideal successor to the Welsh druid would be a Christian, and one who understands the threat posed by the ROP.

  • Grumpy Old Man

    Mr. Strong makes a good point. The secular legal marriage and the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony are 2 different things.

  • … especially by Christians.

  • Unfortunately he’s going to be the new Master at my Cambridge college – Magdalene.

    Since “Magdalene” is pronounced “maudlin,” he may fit right in.

    Magdalene must have changed a lot, it’s not a place that I recall being the natural home of a hairy lefty. What went wrong?

    I’ll miss the eyebrows.

  • Hmm

    I wonder did the Archbish decide to leave because he heard a rumour that things might start to get a little hot… The Grand Mufti of Saudi has just declared war on Christianity – (“Destroy all churches”)

  • Alisa

    Obama silent while Saudi grand mufti targets Christianity

    Well, he did severe his ties with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, didn’t he? Snark.

  • If you have not seen this staggering piece of work on the life and times of the good Arch-Bishope, read it now.


  • Hmm

    Charles Crawford, thanks for the link – the Iowahawk piece is brilliant. Funny as hell. That is one I’m forwarding on… hope others do to – it deserves to go viral (vyerahle? )

  • JohnB

    Most of the people who direct who comes and who goes have an elitist, leftist, collectivist, Frankfurt School sort of agenda.

    One can only wonder what is being set up, by this move.

  • Edward King

    With any luck, John Sentamu will be translated to Canterbury in his place. If so, we’ll miss him in York.

  • Paul Marks

    To judge by his dispute with “Bishop” Spong in the United States, Rowen Williams does believe in God.

    So he is NOT a total fraud – unlike the “Christian” Barack Obama (with his Marxist “collective salvation” and “liberation theology”).

    However, saying that Rowen Williams is not a fraud uses up all the good one can say about his work.

  • It’s amazing in support of me to have a web site, which is valuable in favor of my experience. thanks admin
