'It is not the case that Christians are at risk of their lives or liberties in this country simply for being Christians. Whenever you hear overheated language about this remember those many, many places where persecution is real and Christians are being killed regularly and mercilessly or imprisoned for their resistance to injustice'
- Archbishop Rowan Williams' EASTER SERMON -
Well done, Archbishop Rowan. If your predecessor, Lord Carey and his panicky companions, were in the congregation, no doubt their ears would have been stinging - from the accuracy of your observation.
Their scare-mongering tactics should, by now, have been well and truly exposed - not only to the Church, but also to the millions of people whose opinion of the Church has been tested by Carey's
inane criticism of the UK Government's intention to ride the nation of homophobia and misogyny.
Christ is risen, Alleluia! He is risen indeed, Alleluia, Alleluia! Vivat Rowan!
'The world' lives with the cross every single day --but what of 'the Church' ?
