An unworldly and vague archbishop obsessed by liberal causes

Ok, so the article (by Stephen Glover) is stupid enough, but let's stick with the comments for now:
Ahhh, so the Spectre of Canterbury is going. About time too. Like most liberals (and the entire Labour government), he fought for everyone else's rights and ignored the rights and wishes of his own followers. And when it came to difficult decisions or making a stand on political policy, he ran for the hills or went into hiding. Not so much 'who will rid me of this turbulent priest?', and more like 'anyone seen the Spectre of Canterbury this year?' . From day one he has been a waste of space - from the very time he made that completely incomprehensible first speech. The only priceless aspect of that speech, was the BBC news anchor who said to the roving reporter: 'perhaps you could give us a brief resume of what The Archbishop was saying'. There then followed a stunned silence, as no one had a clue what the Spectre of Canterbury had been talking about. I did wonder if it was delivered in Swahili. That, rather summmed up his entire tennancy in this tennure.

He was sadly extremely confusing when he spoke. He will be less damaging when tucked away in some university. He seemed to be always ready to speak up for Islam rather than for the Christians suffering in moslem countries. What he was doing in the pagan Druid movement is anyones guess. He seemed to be living in a 'bubble'. Best for him to go.

Let's hope that the replacement archbishop focuses policy back onto Biblical teaching & not what some liberals demand as 'their rights'. Time to fight for Christian rights!

Sadly, this Blairite lefty beardy weirdy greenie placeman has been an utter disaster. Now he's off to Cambridge to continue his career of boring the pants off whoever can bother to listen to his vague prolix ramblings. Nobody is ever any the wiser after listening to any of his meandering irrelevant prognostications.

I neither like or admire Rowan Williams. He is a labourite Blair lover who helped to contaminate this country.He also always looks scruffy. After Cameron's track record in everything he does, he should be the last person to choose the next Archbishop of Canterbury. The reason, well we will have someone who is either gay or wants gay marriages. Cameron is a lethal weapon for our country and it is like putting a mental patient in charge of running the asylum.

It seems to be the fashion to join an organisation and then try to change it in ways which are wholly inconsistent with its core purpose of belief. If those who want bishops and clergy who are gay or who follow different teachings then the CoE then they could join a different religious order. If the minority who are discontented want to be in a different church there are at least two ways to achieve that - changing the church is only one; changing the order they work in is another. The attitude seems to be "I want it differently but I am a member so I will destroy the organisation to get what I want". It should be "If others do not want to change or too slowly for me, I will go elsewhere". Go, I say, with goodwill (if you have any) and stop causing distress.

And (possibly) the biggest twunts:
I hope David Cameron does not try to be trendy on us and impose another man with a beard or a token n egro.
