Lord Carey and his views

Rather late in the day?

Lord and Lady Carey in Jerusalem Lord and Lady Carey in Jerusalem
The former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, was the last believable holder of that post. Carey, now Lord Carey, followed the very popular Robert Runcie and it was a hard act to follow. During his term Carey was considered insular and overtly evangelical, saying and doing things that brought him and his church much criticism and appeared not to be bothered by this. Then came Rowan Williams, what a disaster! We can now see that Carey was thoughtful and determined, unmoved by fads, all the things Williams is not.

Writing in the Telegraph Damian Thompson has an interesting article with the title -

The church fights back against Islamification

Carey is quoted as saying -

"We Christians are very often so soft that we allow other people to walk over us, and we are not as tough in what we want, in expressing our beliefs, because we do not want to upset other people,"

Well that will upset a few people, including the current Archbishop of Canterbury!
