He said what?

The _Guardian’s_ “full transcript of the interview”:http://www.guardian.co.uk/religion/Story/0,,1735404,00.html with Rowan Williams is a fascinating glimpse into the process of manufacturing news stories. It contains one quote which won’t be noticed anywhere else, but deserves to be: %(sane) “parts of the internet are, you know, the preserve of bigots and maniacs” % Let’s hope he doesn’t get flamed for this by the commentators at David Virtue’s site. (If that seems obscure, [“look here”:http://www.virtueonline.org/portal/modules/news/article.php?storyid=3781] and do a search on the comments whose tagline is “with christian love”. Not safe before meals.)

    Ignoring the bigots and maniacs (and isn’t it nice when one does), this seems to be a good example of why intellectuals can’t herd cats. Is it far to read from his musings on Bonhoeffer a feeling that he may be closer to the end of his tether than “There might come a moment where you say we can’t continue, we can’t continue with this. I – I don’t know when or if.” indicates?

    And as for the Building Bridges seminars, perhaps the Islams who go to those aren’t the Islams causing the trouble….
