Company Man Stifles Dissent

The Bishop of Durham, Tom Wright, has written a defense of Rowan Williams’ Sharia comments.

It certainly strengthens Wright’s growing reputation as a company man. But it adds little of worth to the discussion of the damage Dr. Williams has done. Instead, it implies with thinly veiled condescension that the furor over Williams’ remarks is due to the “extremely touchy” “uninformed” and their lack of wisdom and maturity.
Well . . . . That’s something of a discussion killer, is it not?
