In reply to: Biblically Challenged 's message, "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1" on 20:17:42 01/02/03 Thu

The Anglican Church’s unquestioning acceptance of authority made it a refuge for anti-colonialists in the so-called Revolutionary War. After King George’s scarlet troops were thwarted, the rabble burned down most of our church buildings and noosed a vicar or two. Oddly, for all the Episcopal Church’s allegiance to the throne in England, it has still managed to pump out more U.S. Presidents than any other denomination.

That said, we might have to stage a coup against our newly minted grand pooh-bah, the Archbishop of Canterbury, whose Christmas eve sermon was a drooling spool of anti-war sloganeering. In the century-old tradition of White Hall taking its marching orders from the White House, neo-lib Blair demands we blot out the Mohammedan invasion; Archbishop Williams should parrot these noble sentiments. We have pinioned our expectations for this Welsh ex-Methodist on the lowest rung but should his insouciance escalate we shall storm Lambeth palace and parade his wooly head on a spike all around town.

We must skedaddle-the confetti on this board is interfering with our DT’s.
