Comments: Archbishop on BBC Radio 4: Start the Week

Just another case, then, of statements by the Archbishop of Canterbury being quoted out of context - thereby affording more controversy than is necessary in the circumstances? Well, who should be surprised at that? The real problem with broadcasting though is that the spoken word is often taken to be 'gospel', whereas the written word can be so easily overlooked and forgiven!!!
Also, the spoken word can be 'spoken', as in this particular case, even before it is officially 'broadcast'. Surely not a good thing?

As for the written word, just take a look at the web-sites of GAFCON & ACNA, no-one really expects them to be reporting the actual truth, only what suits their agenda. Just see what will be coming out of Gafcon/FOCA in Singapore after this month's meeting. There will be lots of hot air, but very little of substance - except to 'virtue-on-line'.
