On the whole this is good news

The Archbishop of Canterbury, His Bloviation, Dr Rowan Williams is departing for greener pastures, to wit, Magdalene College, Cambridge. On the whole, this is good news. I don't care all that much about his travails with homosexuality in the Church apart from being puzzled why it had not been foreseen as a problem.

I do, however, care about his moral relativism, which is not what the Archbishop of Canterbury ought to be preaching, his trendy politicking and his refusal to stand up for Christians under attack, especially in certain Third World countries. Some previous postings on the ArchDruid are here, here, here, here, here and here. Nobody can accuse me of being silent on the subject.

  1. Perhaps he will "come out" as a traditionalist in his retirement.

    Archbishop Carey was not notable for sticking up for Christian orthodoxy
    (Protestant or Catholic) whilst in office. Yet he has felt able to do so now he no longer runs the show.

    This rather reminds me of certain Conservative politicians (most notably Mrs Thatcher) who mostly followed determinedly Europhile lines in office but had political deathbed conversions
    to the idea of national self government.
