Lord Carey and his views

Rather late in the day?

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.
