BREAKING: Times Reports Senior CofE Official Calls for Rowan Williams to Resign

The Fall of Rowan Williams continues. As reported in the Times:

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 faces from within his own Church - 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.

"There have been a lot of calls today for him to resign. I don't suppose he will take any notice, but yes, he should resign."

Why take your news from the MSM?

++Williams did not say what the MSM says he said.

"The Archbishop made no proposals for sharia in either the lecture or the interview, and certainly did not call for its introduction as some kind of parallel jurisdiction to the civil law."

Sorry, I'm not buying his explanation.

Nope, I'm not buying it either. Looks as if His Grace's multi-culturalism finally came back and bit him in the ass. About time.
