Lambeth: The “New Thing” of Wife-beating

Most of my readers are aware of "Bishop" Catherine Roskam’s – umm – contribution to the generous spirit of Lambeth:

We have 700 men here. Do you think any of them beat their wives? Chances are they do. The most devout Christians beat their wives... many of our bishops come from places where it is culturally accepted to beat your wife.

Yes, those Global South Neanderthals are soooo inferior to us enlightened people of faith.

Anglican Musings has a bit of fun with this.

By the way, a helpful commenter has pointed to Anglican Musings as a source of a lot of analysis of the papers and statements coming from Lambeth. I’ve read only a little so far, but what I have read is impressive.
