The wisest fool in Christendom

I can only wonder at the reports (see BBC News) that Rowan Williams is ‘overwhelmed by the “hostility of the response” after his call for parts of Sharia law to be recognised in the UK’. Quite what he expected the reaction of press, public and church to be, clearly it wasn’t this. Bishop Lowe may consider him “one of the greatest and brightest Archbishops of Canterbury we have had for many a long day”, but having a brain the size of a planet is clearly sometimes a disadvantage, when dealing with the rest of us.

I called myself Wilks when I first started blogging. The idea was that it would afford a measure of anonymity. For much the same reason, there was no photo. Times change, hence the photo, but I decided that even when I changed the blog’s title at the start of 2009, I should remain Wilks.
