    Now Rowan Williams sticks his oar in.

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 03 Apr 2010, 11:53 am

    The Archbishop of the English Anglican church, Rowan Williams is never far from notoriety as he interferes in politics and lectures to just about everybody who will listen on as many subjects as he thinks he can get away with.

    Now he is having a go at the Pope and the Catholic Church as he says that The Irish Catholic Church has "lost all credibility" after the child-sex scandals that have been played out in the last few months.

    While he might be right in what he says I am wondering if he should actually get in on this row as he is just going to draw the Anglican church and it's supporters into this mess by his off-the-cuff remarks.

    I would like to see the Pope saying something profound about this scandal and the Rev' Rowan Williams keeping his big mouth shut for once.

    Do you agree folks, or not ?

    Oh Angie, this is right up my street !

    I too think that Rowan Williams should concentrate on his own ministry and stay OUT of things that do not concern him.

    He is trying to stir up trouble between the devotees of the Anglican church and the Catholic church by sticking his oar in here.

    I cannot understand why ANY church would feel the need to interfere in politics either as that is just not in their remit.

    I get quite wound up about acts like this ! Mad

    Religion - if it is working correctly - should be a positive influence and not a negative one.

    Another s**t-stirrer I think !

    Rowan Williams has always felt that he could speak anout anything that comes up his hump but he really has to remember that he is the figurehead for the Anglican church in Britain and as such he really needs to find out when he should keep shtumm and when he should speak.

    That aside I do also think that the Pope should have nipped this one in the bud by speaking out long before this.

    Rowan Williams has got the hump because the Pope said the Catholic Church would welcome Anglicans who would not support the ordination of Women Bishops.

    I reckon it's just a tit for tat exercise.

    Well spotted HG...I agree that there is a bit of that in this war of words.
