This is nice. Via Chuckles, Bruce Charlton discusses Welby and for a few moments, as I know Bruce is a Christian, I thought he might be preparing to excuse the bastard – turn the other cheek etc.

Not a bit of it:

Take as an example the current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby; the assumption is typically that he is a well-meaning individual, a real Christian; but a weak and ineffectual man who is a long way out-of-his-depth in the job. This benign diagnosis is usually underpinned by the idea that Christians (for some, not Christian, reason) ought to give people ‘the benefit of the doubt’ – in assuming they are well motivated.

This is nonsense! – we ought to discover and believe the truth of the situation, as best we can know it.

Justin Welby’s most obvious sin is that he is dishonest. When he is not actively lying, he is deceptively misleading. But Justin Welby only ever lies in one direction – which is either his own personal expediency or for the promotion of the (anti-Christian, anti-Good) agenda of the Global Leftist Establishment.

That’s just beautiful.  Yes of course there’s an imperative to love thy neighbour and insofar as possible be on good terms with everyone but being on good terms with an anti-Christ ain’t part of it. Ditto with the Pope whom every Catholic I know makes excuses for when he is another anti-Christ in everything he says and does.

I prefer truth and calling out non-truth people rather than apologizing and appeasing.

    One only needs to look at his family background, his connections, his earlier career path and his fast-track to his current position to conclude he is where he is because of Them. Nay, he’s One of Them. So whatever he does or says should come as no surprise. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Welby

    P.S. “Welby was at first rejected for ordination by John Hughes, the Bishop of Kensington, who told him: “There is no place for you in the Church of England.”

    Hughes was on the money.

    “Ditto with the Pope … he is another anti-Christ”: be fair, that’s his job.

    The problem with people like Welby and Pope Francis is that they are not Christians in any meaningful sense. I see no evidence that there’s anything even remotely religious in their worldviews. Their outlook is entirely secular.They are, for all practical purposes, atheists.

    Of course in the Church of England if you want to get ahead atheism is pretty much a requirement. There’s no place in the Church of England for people who still believe in God.

    I’ve also said a few other… critical things about Welby:
