Archbishop visits Strensall Barracks

#3
One of the few top God Botherers that is actually interested in people rather than political causes.

Hope he gets the top job before the CoE disappears up it's own arrse.

I always understood that the CofE gave them York precisely because they weren't going to get Cantabury.

Considering 'ethnics' comprise the majority of the Anglican Communion I believe the good Arch-Bishop would be ideal for the 'top job' - he's forward thinking, vibrant, dynamic, and a brilliant man.

Which is exactly why he won't get the job, and it will instead be given to another hand-wringing, mealy-mouthed, indecisive academic who has more interest in making cheap political shots rather than concentrating on the welfare of his flock.

It may be more to do with the media deciding he may not be in their best interests! Somebody who says things like "Celebrity can be malign in that it becomes a form of idolatry, and people live their lives vicariously through the rich and famous rather than attending to their own lives." may be viewed with some suspicion in the hallowed halls of TV and Hello magazine. :)

He's not going to have many fans in the PC/Multicultural brigade with comments like this either, and this was before promotion.

"called for a re-discovery of English pride and cultural identity, warning that zeal for multiculturalism had sometimes "seemed to imply, wrongly for me, 'let other cultures be allowed to express themselves but do not let the majority culture at all tell us its glories, its struggles, its joys, its pains'." Just as at Birmingham, Sentamu has expressed a desire to be known informally as Archbishop for York (rather than of)."
