Well, now. A former Archbishop of Canterbury has come out foursquare on the side of the Popes remarks abot Islam. Actually, hes even more blunt than the Pope, quoting a contemporary rather than a 13th century emperor. Sample:
Lord Carey, who as Archbishop of Canterbury became a pioneer in Christian-Muslim dialogue, himself quoted a contemporary political scientist, Samuel Huntington, who has said the world is witnessing a “clash of civilisations”.
Arguing that Huntington’s thesis has some “validity”, Lord Carey quoted him as saying: “Islam’s borders are bloody and so are its innards. The fundamental problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilisation whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.”
Too bad hes the former Archbishop. Youd expect riots over this, except that no one cares about the Anglical Church much any more.
