About Face

Rick Warren went from this:

"... it is not my personal calling as a pastor in America to comment or interfere in the political process of other nations."
[Newsweek 29Nov]

To this:

"The potential law is unjust, extreme and un-Christian."
[ 09Dec]


Let's keep up the pressure and give Rick Warren some company in the "about face" column by challenging the Archbishop of Canterbury to step up and speak out.

Yes, yes, I know -- "gracious restraint" and all. But let's be real: If we'd exercised gracious restraint and kept the tea out of the Boston Harbor we'd all be members of the CofE singing "God Save the Queen" and still waiting for women bishops. (No one ever said it made sense!)

So here's what you do:

If you're a Facebook person you can join the "Anglicans who want THIS statement from Canterbury" group here.

You can also give Lambeth Palace a ring at +44-20-7898-1200 Ext. 1280

Or -- for the price of a 98-cent stamp -- you can send a snail mail letter wishing the Archbishop a Very Happy Christmas and ask him (respectfully, of course) to work to end homophobia by speaking out against the Ugandan legislation and by staying out of the Los Angeles election.

Go. Do it. Now.

Not every day we want the archbishop to follow the Baptist!

I have to agree with Jim it is for the Archbishop to make him own mind not to follow of crowd
