Politics and the Primate
It really does seem quite a coincidence that, on the same day as we hear about Rowan William's criticisms of the Coalition Government, Theos has published this report examining the way the previous three Archbishops of Canterbury have intervened in political matters. I've skim read it and it also looks at the various justification for and objections to the heady mix of religion and politics - for what it's worth, I am all in favour of our faith being to do with this world as well as the next! Church Mouse meanwhile reckons that Rowan Williams words and intentions may have been misreported. Nothing new there then! I am sure one of the ABC's favourite mantras must be "that's not what I said...."
