Arch dhimmi of Canterbury praises Islam. Agian.

CAIRO — In an unprecedented move by a Western Christian leader, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has praised British Muslims for bringing back religion and ethics into public life.“I think Islam has made a very significant contribution to getting a debate about religion into public life,” Williams, the leader of the Anglican Church, told the Muslim News.

“And I think it’s very right that we should have these debates and discussions between Muslims and Christians and others in public.”

Britain is home to more than two million Muslims.

This is the first time a Western Christian leader thanks Muslims for bringing back religion to a secular Western society.

Last November, Head of Vatican’s Department for Interfaith Contacts Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran praised Muslims for bringing religion back into the public life in Europe.

Williams, the leader of the Anglican Church, lamented the unfriendly atmosphere for faith in British society.

“If we are not allowed as religious people to talk and argue about these issues in public then I think society has become a rather unfriendly place for religious people and that’s not helpful change.”

Williams, criticized the West’s Christian leaders for failing to bring their societies away for the devastating and dominating materialism.

“(They were unable to) turn around our society which was being driven by materialism,” he said.

“(I hope) to see leaders listening specifically to the more ethical challenges that faith brings.”


Williams called for bolstering Muslim-Christian cooperation to serve the well being of the whole community.

“The idea that what’s good for me and what’s good for you belongs together,” he said.

“Both Muslims and Christians have a very strong sense of God’s will being done in community, when we really follow the needs of the community and work for one another on that in the will of God.”

The Anglican leader, however, admitted that the Christian Muslim Forum, which he initiated in 2001 for brining UK Muslims and Christians together, had not reached the grassroots so far.

“The conversation of the elite and intellectuals isn’t in itself going to change anything,” he pointed out.

“We’ve got to deal with it and complicated questions, but we have to make good neighbors.”

The Archbishop stressed the significant role of faith schools in enhancing interfaith dialogue and community harmony.

“Keep the presence of religion in our educational institutions and I think there is a lot that can be done there,” he said.

Williams has repeatedly defend faith schools in Britain as contributing to the promotion of religious tolerance.

He asserted that faith schools are already proven in their ability to reach out across faith boundaries and help to build confidence in minority communities.

Dear Friends,
It is a shame as Christians and believers in our Lord and God Jesus Christ to have someone like this rowan williams among us. At the time when millions of muslims around the world are coming to faith in Our Lord and God Jesus Christ we see someone like this fake archbishop of Canterbury praising the darkness of islam, what kind of spiritual blindness that is. At the time when countries like Tunisia and Turkey are abolishing the influence of the despicable islamic sharia from their civil law, we find that false christian leader calling for the use of the despicable sharia law for muslims in the once Great Christian Britain. This rowan williams is doing a harmful dishonor to great see of the archbishopric of Canterbury that was once occupied by the Great St. Anselme in the eleventh century who was a Great Christian Scholar and a tower of Holiness and Sanctity, and also by St. Thomas Beckett who stood strong for the rights of the Church of Christ and reposed as a Great Martyr in the twelfth century. Where is that sick-headed rowan williams from the towering stature of a St Thomas More, a William Tyndale, a William Wilberforce, a James Hudson Taylor, a James Morrison, a Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a C.S. Lewis, a Malcolm muggeridge or a Eric Lidell. Inasmuch as these people brought Glory to England and its Christian life, this fake, embarrassing and shameful rowan williams is bringing it shame and dishonor. Let's pray that Our Lord and God Jesus Christ who is the all-powerful ever living God and Creator of all things visible and invisilble, protect THE GLORIOUS Christian faith in England from the darkness of islam and May Our Lord and God Jesus Christ protect the faithful Christians there and may he shines with his Light over the muslims, hindus and sikhs to bring them out from the darkness of their demonic religions to a saving knowledge of himself.
