How incredibly embarassing for an Episcopalian. Now it appears that the Archbishop of Canterbury -- remember the one who said it would be "wrong" not to doubt the existence of God in the wake of the tsunami? -- is on to yet another flaky project. He intends to set out his vision of environmentalist utopia at the General Synod meeting next week. Chief among his objectives is ensuring that Episcopal churches serve only organic bread and wine, and that parishes commit to selling only "fair trade" items at their functions.

With the Church still reeling from the whole issue of ordaining homosexuals, and a certain dearth of actual theology becoming ever more characteristic of many Episcopal parishes, is this really the best use of his time? The question answers itself. Rowan Williams and people like him are killing the Episcopal Church. Well, at least its adherents will die laughing -- at the ridiculous Archbishop who's supposed to be the Church's earthly leader.

I find it astounding that Christian "leaders" have gone off the deep end with the rest of the liberals while fundamentalists are denounced as the looney ones. Lib teachers rewrite history to their liking, lib politicians rewrite the Constitution to their liking, and lib preachers rewrite the Bible to their liking. Unfortunately in the latter case, God will probably have something special to say to them according to the Book of James.

Remind me: Which denomination was it that said they were right and everyone else, Christian-wise, was wrong?
