Abp Williams to Waste a Trip to the U.S.

ENS tells us:

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams will make a presentation addressing the world's economic crisis during a panel discussion webcast live July 8 from the Episcopal Church's 76th General Convention, scheduled to take place July 8-17 in Anaheim, California.

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson will host the event, to be called "Christian Faithfulness in the Global Economic Crisis" at the Anaheim Hilton from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. PST (10:30 p.m. EST).

"I am delighted that the General Convention will have the opportunity to focus on global economic issues and, in the process, consider how our stewardship may be exercised for the benefit of the larger world,"said Jefferts Schori, who will provide an overview of the economic crisis and introduce Williams.

We had been told he was going to lead a Bible study. Many of us hoped he would be available for an open Q&A forum. But no. There will be none of that.

We know he has given aid and comfort to the people who are trying to have the Episcopal Church kicked out of the Anglican Communion.

And now we learn he's going to give an economic policy presentation to our Bishops and Deputies???

[Caption to photo at left: The Archbishop climbs of his bunker just long enough to say "Peek-a-boo" to the Episcopal Church.]

If that's the best he can manage, he should save his British sterling and just stay home. What a stupid waste! Is he really this cowardly?

He writes encouraging letters to schismatics in the Episcopal Church, but lacks the courage to talk with our bishops and deputies about the most burning issues ecclesiastical issues facing the Anglican Communion today?

There are plenty of more qualified people in the Episcopal Church, who could speak to the economic issues.

I know some economists. Rowan, Katharine, and Bonnie are no economists! WTF are they thinking??

Hail to Rowan, Archbishop of Laodicea, and his enablers, Katherine & Bonnie.

[For some reason, Blogger doesn't want me to use "chickenshit" along with the titles of Bishop or President to apply to Rowan Williams, Katharine Jefferts-Schori, or Bonnie Anderson. It must be some sort of technical glitch.]

He could always get a job as a stunt for Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies.

Good idea, Brad. I think it would be a step up.

J.K. Rowling made just over 7 dollars a second last year. Think of getting some of that!

Don't let the beard fool you...Rowan is noDumbledore. For one thing, the fictional wizard actually stands up to evil.

Rowan is more like Cornelius Fudge.

You nailed it, Andrew! Thanks. Dumbledore bravely faced evil, whereas +Rowan often slithers away.

Isn't it ironic that he can make such clear statements about the evil being perpetrated in places like Sudan, but can't muster any courage to stand up for his beliefs within the Anglican Communion? What's up with that?
