More from Archbishop Williams and Other Stuff from Around the Web

So, after twenty years of "prayer" and "study" on the matter, the Archbishop of Canterbury thinks gay relationships reflect the love of God much in the same way marriage does.  Swell.  This is what happens when you engage in twenty years of prayer and study without being willing to submit to the final authority of Scripture.  Click here: Rowan Williams: gay relationships 'comparable to marriage' -Times Online

What happens when Italian Roman Catholics go "seeker"?  They come up with an inflatable church, pick a beach, and then they take confessions from vacationers.  Anyone who has ever witnessed what goes on those inflatable "bounce houses" at a neighborhood birthday party, will (understandably) have a bit of trouble taking an inflatable church seriously.  Do you have to take off your shoes before you go in?

Boy, times have changed.  I remember having to go into the local "head shop" (with all the tie-dye, and roach clips, and ziggy papers) to buy Grand Funk's Red Album because it was too controversial for the local record shop to carry it.  And now I read that AC/DC's new release is a Wal-Mart exclusive???  You gotta love Wal-Mart--the only store on earth where you can buy a suit, a tire, a box of shotgun shells, slim-fast, a vacuum cleaner, and the new AC/DC CD, all in the same place.  Click here: Rock'n'roll damnation - Wal-Mart style | Music |

Baseball fans know the story of Jason Giambi's mustache.  The American Mustache Institute offered the following words of sadness when Giambi went into slump and shaved it off.  Long live the mustache!!!!!  click here: The LoHud Yankees Blog

The problem with those letters is they are, themselves, eight years old. So while we know what ++Canterbury thought when he was ++Wales (more pertinent than a private letter, he founded Affirming Catholicism, an Anglo-Cath pro-gay grouping), we don't know whether his views have moved. Chances are they haven't, of course, but he's working tremendously hard to hold the Communion together: I could well believe that ++York and +Durham might have had some positive influence.

This is off topic. But liberal Time magazine writer Amy Sullivan is accusing the McCain campaign of calling Obama the antichrist in a new ad titled "The One". Check out Mollie Hemingway's (friend of Issue,etc.) blog about it at

But where is the conservative reformed (Anglican) to go? ++Rowan and the +Wright are problems. Although Wright is more conservative Biblically. In England, there are still Anglicans that hold to Reformed theology. The Continuum in this country is papist, for the most part. Then there is Reformed, but without Prayerbook liturgy! Groan!

Wal-Mart are the kings of sell. So you like Grand Gunk , so you are funk head , why were they so hated by the critic man they were cool . Anyway its a perfect fit for AC/DC because they are the king of red neck rock and that''s were Wally World excels. Journey did the same thing and guess what , they have the biggest selling record , OK I still say record , in over 15 years. Anyway take care and by the way , what is your fav Funk album ? Mine is Phoenix . Gotta love Farner .

And while you're at Wal-Mart, don't forget the great selection of books!

Just walk the short walk from the DVD/CD section over to the great line-up of Christian literature where you can pick up the latest from Osteen, Warren, etc.

(Does Wal-Mart sell inflatable churches?)

I wonder how wide of a perimeter Rome needs to patrol to keep anyone from whipping out their BB gun and bringing down the house.

Does the inflatable Church come with inflatable icons and images? Any willing iconoclast could bring new meaning to Stab-at Mater!

‘This is what happens when you engage in twenty years of prayer and study without being willing to submit to the final authority of Scripture.’

Very true quote, so often we seek God to answer prayer apart from (or even contrary to) Scripture

Whatever your politics, there's a good short article on the current state of the Anglican Communion in the latest National Review. Should be available online
