US is‘worst’ imperialist: archbishop
THE Archbishop of Canterbury has said that the United States wields itsIn Williams' "modern church", liturgy, politics and morals must all match his church's interpretation of the Bible and theology. It must do so because the "modern church" is more interested of social activism and social justice than the word of God. Its newest mission is secular because, in my opinion, they really do not believe in God anymore than they believe in the Great Pumpkin.
power in a way that is worse than Britain during its imperial heyday.
Rowan Williams claimed that America’s attempt to intervene overseas by
“clearing the decks” with a “quick burst of violent action” had led to “the
worst of all worlds”.
In a wide-ranging interview with a British Muslim magazine, the Anglican
leader linked criticism of the United States to one of his most pessimistic
declarations about the state of western civilisation.
He said the crisis was caused not just by America’s actions but also by
its misguided sense of its own mission. He poured scorn on the “chosen nation
myth of America, meaning that what happens in America is very much at the heart
of God’s purpose for humanity”.
I know it would deject them to lose so much great architecture, religious baubles and some outstanding real estate, but the Church of England ought to just cut to the chase and become Unitarians. Think of all the money they could save not having to make cross purchases.
Williams went beyond his previous critique of the conduct of the war on
terror, saying the United States had lost the moral high ground since September
11. He urged it to launch a “generous and intelligent programme of aid directed
to the societies that have been ravaged; a check on the economic exploitation of
defeated territories; a demilitarisation of their presence”.
He went on to suggest that the West was fundamentally adrift:
“Our modern western definition of humanity is clearly not working very well.
There is something about western modernity which really does eat away at the
Bishop, buddy, friend, who's adrift here? Your church is, and England probably is too, which doesn't quite give you solid ground to stand on to judge who has the moral high and low ground. Where do you stand Bishop Williams when an Imam preaches murder and someone reports it only to be charged with a hate crime for saying "nasty" things about Muslims?
In the interview in Emel, a Muslim lifestyle
magazine, Williams makes only mild criticisms of the Islamic world. He said the
Muslim world must acknowledge that its “political solutions were not the most
He commends the Muslim practice of praying five times a day, which he
says allows the remembrance of God to be “built in deeply in their daily
Let's do a short recap Bishop: 9/11, centuries of murder and war, subjugation and belittlement of women, hatred of non Muslims and praying five times a day gives Muslims rhythm which makes them good. Are you referring to Marvin Gaye or a metronome beating the constant beat of western civilization ceding principle and morals in a vain attempt to gain the high intellectual ground?
Free Christian nations fighting back after being attacked, deposing dictators and freeing millions and helping build and rebuild nations to join the family of democracy makes them bad.
You are an egotistical maniac attempting to be an hegemonic "intellectual" leader. Unfortunately, I think really that you are a sad buffoon that stayed at the party too long and forgot why you came in the first place.
