Rowan William's was Tony Bliar's parting practical joke on the Anglican Church.

Rowan Williams was portrayed as a clever academic but in reality had no common sense and failed to keep the Anglican Church above liberal politics and failed to protect Christians from abuse and attacks from vocal minority groups like the national secular society and the vocal gay lobby.
Christians should be proud of their faith and values and should distance themselves from minorities who want to destroy these values and the new Archbishop of Canterbury should be the man who defends those values.

It is essential that the next Archbishop supports and proclaims the faith and upholds Christian values, giving voice to all those who have been alarmed and depressed at the increasingly strident side-lining and denigration of Christians in this country. There is also a great need for him highlight the plight of Christians worldwide, that has been largely ignored by the broadcasting and print media. I would consider John Sentemu to be the perfect choice.
However, I am deeply afraid Cameron (egged on by the vocal coterie of liberal bishops) will choose another über-Liberal bishop for elevation who will continue the baleful legacy of Williams.

The movement towards acceptance of homosexuality come from within the church, in North America specifically - what could the Archbishop do about that?

Surely there is no other sensible choice than Ebor, John Sentamu, now that the former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali is no longer a contender.

Rowan Williams is staying until the end of the year. A lot can happen in the next nine months. Not a very wise decision on his part.

David Cameron should get an Oscar for that, he didn't crack up once.
The Daily Mash gets it right again.
Man bored of leading thing that doesn't matter
A MAN who led a thing that doesn't matter for 10 years has become bored of it.
The man said he was now going to do something more interesting in an organisation that has a point.
The man said: "At first it seemed as if the thing mattered because whenever I said something the newspapers would publish it.
"And, while I am very clever, the only reason they were doing that was because I was the leader of the thing. But we both knew, deep down, that the thing didn't matter.
"Also, I have a very big office and a rather striking hat, both of which made me feel as if the thing mattered more than it actually did.
"And I got to meet famous people, who were all very kind and would pretend to be impressed with me, even though they probably thought the thing wasn't very good and that I was wasting my time.
"But I'm quite old now and I want to actually do something that, you know, matters."
The man is now expected to be replaced by another man who will try to make the thing matter by saying things that will make it matter even less.

David 1 - "The thing" represents the faith and values of Christians and the decency and goodness of Christians within the Anglican Church.
There are 5 million Anglicans and 5 million Catholics in England and many other religious people.
The Archbishop of Canterbury does matter provided he supports Christians from the abuse and distortion of vocal minority groups like the national secular society and the gay lobby.
He must keep his nerve and be proud of the faith and values and the way ordinary Christian people live their lives.
