TOPIC: Archbishop of Canterbury and his friend God
#2400
Archbishop of Canterbury and his friend God 14 Years, 11 Months ago  
Earlier today, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams described climate change as "a huge practical problem and a huge moral problem".

Everyone should consider the needs of future generations when making decisions about their lifestyles, he said.

Dr Williams told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: "In the first instance, the moral responsibility lies with absolutely everybody, not only in terms of examining our own lifestyle and asking what concretely can be done, but also in sending a message to governments that this is recognised as a priority by the public."

Asked how God would judge politicians who failed to act on warnings of environmental disaster, Dr Williams said: "I think if you look at the language of the Bible on this, you very often come across situations where people are judged for not responding to warnings.

"There are choices we can make, each one of us, to change things now, and I think what the Bible and the Christian tradition suggests is that those who have a challenge before them and don't respond bear a very heavy responsibility before God."

I wonder therefore, how god judges heads of religious organisations who allow repeated child abuse to go on and go out of their way to cover it up over and over again?

I should think God judges everyone equally.

Not sure that the A of C has "covered up" or condoned child abuse. Those allegations have mainly been made against Catholic Priests, and I'm not sure how many of them are genuine. No doubt some are, but we all know how easy it is to make false accusations and have them expanded by the media. Lots of money to be made in that area.
