Archbishop of Canterbury Defends Christians


Yes, I know it sounds like a dog-bites-man story, but when the Archbishop in question is Rowan Williams, it actually qualifies as news when he unequivocally defends Christians, rather than engaging in his usual moral equivalence practice.

He actually comes off as rather peeved, too, describing the latest controversy over a nurse punished for wearing a cross in these terms:

'Now it is quite likely that this latest folly, like others, is less a sign of deep anti-Christian feeling as such than the result of wooden-headed bureaucratic silliness combined with a well-meaning and completely misplaced anxiety about giving offence to non-Christians.
