Williams gets better and better
And speaking of manhood,
one small positive sign for civilization is that Rowan Williams has found his.
Same-sex marriage would be one of the biggest threats to the established role of the Church of England since the reign of Henry VIII, the Church warns today. Senior figures believe the plans could allow [EU] to strip the Church of England of its unique power to act as an 'agent of the state’ by conducting marriages for anyone living within a parish, regardless of religious beliefs. This would, in effect, be a step towards splitting the Church from the State.
The redefinition of marriage would create a clash between the laws of Church and state thought to be unprecedented since the onset of the reformation in the 1530s.
The amazing part is that Williams found his pair before
retiring. We know the predictable pattern only too well in politics, culture, business and science: serve Satan loyally for 20 years, then speak the truth after retirement. Sorry, that's totally useless. Truth doesn't exist unless you're in a position to control money and hiring.
Williams has broken the pattern dramatically by speaking and IMPLEMENTING truth while he's still in office and in power.
It's exceedingly late in the game. Stalinist fairies and Satanist bulldykes took over his church 30 years ago, along with other rich post-Christian "churches" like Methodist and Presbyterian and Lutheran and UCC and Catholic and Unitarian.
But I'm not complaining. One rich church has finally started to fight back!
