Archbishop of Canterbury 'should resign' over Sharia row
A senior Church of England clergyman called today for the resignation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, over his remarks supporting Sharia in England.

The call, from a long-standing member of the Church's governing body, the General Synod, demonstrated the strength of the backlash Dr Williams that faces from within his own Church ‚ÄĒ as well as from political and other faith leaders.

The senior Synod member, who insisted on remaining anonymous, told The Times: "A lot of people will now have lost confidence in him. I am just so shocked, and cannot believe a man of his intelligence could be so gullible. I can only assume that all the Muslims he meets are senior leaders of the community who tell him what a wonderful book the Koran is. ...

Unfortunate this consistent, sad herecy is the most visible part of the chruch and it SICKENS US, but please pray for us rather than eagerly wait for our death. Several of these comments seem to have no understanding that the majority of the Anglican Communion is fighting this foolishness from the pulpit as well as from our knees. We will not run, but will fight for the cause of Christ though we be despised, rejected or persecuted. What are you doing?

Said
"Wow, talk about misrepresentations!
Jim, Wright is no liberal,...."

But
Note what Mr Wright says here...

"Rowan Williams, who is the Archbishop of Canterbury and the spiritual head of the Anglican Communion, created a 19-member Lambeth Commission to "find ways of keeping the worldwide Anglican Communion from disintegrating in the wake of the Episcopal Church's ordination of an openly gay bishop and a Canadian diocese's sanctioning of same-sex blessings." The Rt. Rev. N.T. Wright, bishop of Durham in the Church of England is a member of the Commission. He said: "...the primary question to be answered by the Lambeth Commission is one of communion, not homosexuality....We're looking at questions of how you hold the church together when that happens. Only secondary is the question of homosexuality."

Whilst God states
Lev 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination"

Ro 1:24 "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie"

Alastair, how do you suppose Wright proposes to go into "communion" with this Biblical objection to homosexuality? Remove the Bible?

I don't agree with much that the archbishop says, but his carefully nuanced arguments and calm erudition is far more appealing than the frenzied yapping of his critics, who seem incapable of digesting an argument more complex than a soundbite.
I took the time to read this as you suggested. However, I am more convinced that the "frenzied yapping" of his critics may be justified. The article is typical Episcopal equivocation, rhetoric, and non-sense.

Quote;
"As the furore has made very clear, Williams uses the example of sharia, which he explains as one of the key practices that enable Islamic communities to work as complex, social, ongoing contexts in which Muslim identities are formed. If we are serious about freedom of religion in a liberal, pluralist state, we need to do some serious thinking about the right of Islamic people to be formed by sharia, and to participate in public life as people formed by sharia." eoq.

The problem is not one of Law or our legal system.
The problem here is that someone who calls himself "Christian," AND head of a church, is upholding the input and law of the idolatrous koranic law of the Muslim.
The Muslim is going to hell because he is not a Christian.

Williams task on earth is to teach the only way of salvation, through Christ, the Son of God.
By planting a seed of association with the Islamic religious laws, he is, because of his position, bringing credence to evil and the way to hell.

Rowan Williams is not a Christian, he is a Liberal which is a different religion. Thus his remarks in one sense are irrelevant to true Biblical Christian doctrine. But Liberal religion, acting in the church, is Satan's ploy of attack and should be fought against.

I see that Rownie is viewed with deep affection by the rank & file Anglicans in the UK, and what's more he has gotten support of the Cardinal Murphy of Great Britain, now how can you get better support than that, including the BBC's?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7237863.stm

The ex-Archbishop of Canterbury isn't so supportive, Sharia law row: Archbishop is in shock as he faces demands to quit and criticism from Lord Carey.

Don't stay in the Anglican Church! conform yourself to Christianity and become a NonComformist! There is the The Down Grade of the Anglican Church!

The Church of England is gone! The first Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer chose to be burned rather than to compromise the Gospel. Today's Anglican church is nothing of what it was originally. The sooner it falls apart the better, it is a disgrace to Christ and a joke to the world. Visit www.continuingcofe.org for a small remnant of true Anglicans. Yes there is a biblical alternative for truly born-again Anglicans who cherish their Reformation heritage.

Whether Williams resigns or not is really not the point today. The Anglican communion is full to brim with false witness in both pulpit and pew.

This debacle is yet another sign of the apostasy of this rotting church.

Satan is glad to have organisations like this in our societies, which corrode Biblical authority amongst our people.

What the true church needs to do is declare its separation from and its different message clearly to our nations.

A quotation from a similar article,'"Alison Ruoff, a Synod member from London, said: "Many people, huge numbers of people, would be greatly relieved [if he resigned] because he sits on the fence over all sorts of things and we need strong, Christian, biblical leadership right now, as opposed to somebody who huffs and puffs around and vacillates from one thing to another.

"He's a very able, a brilliant scholar as a man but in terms of being a leader of the Christian community I think he's actually at the moment a disaster."'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7236174.stm

The above is excellent advice to the Archbishop! Inadequacy of Islam and Don't judge the Muslims that you know by Islam and don't judge Islam by the Muslims that you know."
