April 4, 2010 on ITN News
From The Guardian:
Rowan Williams's comments on Vatican handling of sex abuse scandal likely to further cloud pope's upcoming UK trip.

    Colossal corporate trauma? Is that what he said? Eh, has Guiness gone out of business?

  2. Shame he later apologised for this...

  3. Okay Rowan Williams briefly broke ranks and was quickly brought back in line. Mustn't start criticising sister religions because if they start fighting back goodness knows where it will all end!!

    The Catholics are still not "singing from the same hymn sheet" - describing the sex abuse crisis as "serious sins" or "petty gossip".  Did you notice that the comments that come from closer to the vatican have the thickest layer of whitewash?

    Now the Church of England is promoting the view that Christians are being persecuted - the BBC  (public broadcaster) has aired a programme tonight called: "Are Christians being Persecuted?" - no-one from the National Secular Society was invited to take part to give the secular viewpoint.  BBC cannot do balanced religious broadcasting, it only promotes this rubbish.

  4. The video doesn't work for me; I think the uploader changed the settings to 'private'.
