Archbishop of Canterbury has been 'abducted by aliens' says bishop

Bishop Gene Robinson doesn't do himself any favours by being rather rude about Rowan Williams. He seems to think that the Archbishop of Canterbury has been "abducted by aliens" simply by trying to profess the Faith. What is alien for the Church is for the sacraments to be undermined by those who, for whatever reason, cannot maintain the discipline of faith. Those that keep to the historic understanding of the Church's traditions are attacked and belittled. Gene Robinson may have quite an honest belief but his beliefs are not those of the whole church by any stretch of the imagination. That is the point, surely.

This story appeared in the Daily Mail which also reports that the archbishop of Canterbury "has warned of shortages of vicars due to clergy moving to Rome". Most who are moving at the moment are not vicars, but as I've said before, the secular media uses the term "vicar" for any cleric regardless of the actual position.
