Archbishop of Canterbury: Imperial Act Of Arrogance

This guy should be the Bishop of Wankerbury. If the modern church is representative of its leaders, the good Bishop is lacking in belief, not arrogance. If his statements in the article below are representative of his political knowledge, Archbishop Williams should be presiding over the fastest dwindling, most arrogant and least effective church. If so, they are a perfect match, Anglican representative Williams.

US is‘worst’ imperialist: archbishop

THE Archbishop of Canterbury has said that the United States wields its
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”.
In 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.

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.

Read'em and "bleep".

Markos "Daily Kos" Moulitsas With friends like this…..

Bill Maher is a comedian who was quoted “I think flying planes into a building was a faith-based initiative. I think religion is a neurological disorder.” Funny guy.

Christopher Hitchens Self professed “darling” to the media and, in his mind, everyone else states, "I am not a conservative of any kind" and as an anti-theist he said, “all religious belief is sinister and infantile”.

Barry Manilow explained “Misfits aren't misfits among other misfits.” ‘Bout wraps that up.

John Mayer sings “Your Body Is A Wonderland”, but my mind hums maybe his mind isn’t.

Andrew Sullivan If you like British “conservatives” whose primary issue has something to do with the gay lifestyle, go with Andrew. Literally.

Mark Cuban Funded “Redacted” a film meant to be a disgusting anti-American film. His support of "Redacted" appears to be his life's high point.

Aaron Russo believed he was asked to join the Council on Foreign Relations and said that he knew about 9/11 nine months before it occurred. (Did he ever deny that Jean Dixon was his mom?)

Okay, DrRP is beginning to get scary.

Our Own Political Moron, Let's Give It all Up For Marc Dann

Right Angle has a great summation of da man who has two left feet.

But in all seriousness, would Democrats have voted for Marc Dann if they
would have known that, in his first year, he would sell his former Ohio Senate
seat to the mafia, hire a killer as his driver, hire a double-dipping Youngstown
police department employee as Ohio’s “top cop”, swear at a reporter on
camera, lose a major battle in court for his trial lawyer friends who wanted to
sue paint manufacturers, use a public email account to spew bigoted
anti-Christian rhetoric, paint ridiculous flames on his car, and direct elderly
callers who wish to register complaints to a phone sex hotline? Marc Dann is
pathetic, sloppy and undignified.
