Kudos to the Archbishop of Canterbury

ACNS 4386:

In response to reports of violence and threats towards Christians involved in the debate on human sexuality, the Archbishop of Canterbury has given the following statement:
"The threats recently made against the leaders of Changing Attitudes are disgraceful. The Anglican Communion has repeatedly, through the Lambeth Conference and the statements from its Primates' Meetings, unequivocally condemned violence and the threat of violence against gay and lesbian people. I hope that this latest round of unchristian bullying will likewise be universally condemned."

Some background is here. I had not known that there were Christians actually threatened other Christians with murder. No matter how much we disagree on any issue, we are, as we have been singing this Eastertide during the Breaking of the Bread, one body, because we all share in the one bread. Therefore there can be no excuse for this kind of behavior - it's akin to blasphemy.

Too little, too late and too lukewarm.
