US is‘worst’ imperialist: archbishop Rowan Williams
Just when I was getting used to the idea of calling myself an Anglican.
Yeah that's nice. Pour scorn on the United States in a Muslim magazine. Play to their stereotype. Good liberal, now roll over and beg. Good liberal.
Rowan Williams claimed that America’s attempt to intervene overseas by “clearing the decks” with a “quick burst of violent action” had led to “the worst of all worlds”.
In a wide-ranging interview with a British Muslim magazine, the Anglican leader linked criticism of the United States to one of his most pessimistic declarations about the state of western civilisation.
He said the crisis was caused not just by America’s actions but also by its misguided sense of its own mission. He poured scorn on the “chosen nation myth of America, meaning that what happens in America is very much at the heart of God’s purpose for humanity”. [Emphasis added.]
