Dr Rowan Williams

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.

Off message at Christmas

Speaking but saying nothing

Far too loud Far too loud
Both of the gruesome twosome, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams and the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu have, as expected at this time of year, let us know their thoughts. Sentamu had his witterings published in the Guardian and they were not well received. Let's face it, if you cannot get a decent response from the good folk at the Guardian with musings on the subject of 'room at the inn' then something is amiss. But then again if the infrastructure of the UK had kept pace with the rise in the number of immigrants things would be different.
