I always look forward to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Christmas speech. It helps re-affirm my belief in not having any belief in the useless post-Christian Anglican leader. True to form, Druid Williams did not disappoint. You will recall he has come out on the side of the Occupy rabble so it was always going to be a cert (or, a banker if you prefer) that this year our Rowan would once again demonstrate his Marxist roots;
Dr Rowan Williams raised eyebrows on Sunday by saying the rioters were no worse than the bankers and that ‘bonds of trust’ had broken throughout society. In his Christmas sermon, he said: ‘Whether it is an urban rioter mindlessly burning down a small shop that serves his community, or a speculator turning his back on the question of who bears the ultimate cost for his acquisitive adventures in the virtual reality of today’s financial world, the picture is of atoms spinning apart in the dark.’
No, the picture is of liberal wholly fools spinning in the dark unable to grasp even the most basic moral precepts. There is a VAST chasm between those who break the law and burn down other people’s property and those who lawfully operate within financial markets. There is nothing immoral in “speculation” but then again it is interesting to hear this man who presides over a £4.5bn asset lecture others about money.
And then, just when I though things couldn’t get worse for the hallowed out and degenerate Anglican leadership, I read that the Bishop of London wants to put up a “memorial tent” a permanent display inside St Paul’s Cathedral in honour of the Occupy protesters. The term “whited sepulchre” comes to mind.
