Archbishop of Canterbury has his say

So what do you think of this then?

Personally I think he has as much of a right to speak his mind as any of us. The Archbishop of Canterbury has warned that the government is committing Britain to "radical, long-term policies for which no-one voted".

Let him speak to his flock I say. There are some sheep across the road from me who might listen.

I read Joseph Kerr's 5.52 post as a response to fourm member's statement "one of the key flaws of people who don't understand the world is that they lay themselves open to misinterpretation by failing to see what others read into their words". I believe he is asserting that misinterpretation by others is not the fault of the Archbishop.

With regard to politics and religion, he is of course a member of the House of Lords and hence far more in touch with current political events than most people. I have always found it difficult to square Christian beliefs with reactionary politics.

He's that clever that he allows his whole life to be governed by a myth.

No way is anyone like him going to influence me one little bit. He should shut up, and stay shut up.

And what an absolute comic he was writing in. Back issues have pride of place in my toilet.

"radical long term policies" for which no one voted,well no one voted for Christianity.?/ Augustine,that failed heretic of ancient beliefs has a lot to answer for. "he is clever"..so was "GOD" and all his minions in all their various guises,and has the "world" improved,history suggests not. "He has the right to speak"..yes he does,but let him understand that his words are spoken from the mantle of privilege and not from his alleged progenitors experience.When the "church"" in all its denominations and beliefs understand and embrace the "true" symbolism of a life in "GOD" then they may just be more than an adjunct to present day concerns. And another thing,in the west, religion tried it's "Big Society" and failed for reasons it is yet to acknowledge never mind accept.

As you say, everyone is entitled to his/her own opinions, but I think Religion and Politics should be kept separate.

Nontek, everything and everyone is political. The church certainly is, and always has been, and our politics and law are steeped in religion in all sorts of ways.

Cymro, what are you getting at, exactly?

Joseph Kerr asked Cymro, what are you getting at, exactly?

I posted the second link so that we all realize that intellectually the Bishop is a very much cleverer man than any of our present government. He is cleverer and a better educated than most and that includes many on this forum. I think he would do very well on this forum.
