Rowan Williams: You know when you have said the wrong thing!

Rowan Williams is still being attacked on the front pages today, for example there is this in the Times.

I have not commented on this for two reasons. Firstly I have been busy, and secondly I am not sure what he actually said. What is more I doubt the people who are shouting the loudest know what he said either. Politics doesn't work like that. You say something then people comment on either what they would have liked you to have said or what they think you have said, whilst putting the worst interpretation on it.

Reminds me of the the story of the man who did many great things but is only remembered for what he did with a goat.

Both reason why I did not bother commenting on it either. We'll leave the idiots to it. They probably don't go to Church, and if they did perhaps they should concentrate a bit more on what the Bible says as well. Good post.
