One comment on “(ACNS) The Archbishop of Canterbury's Representative to the Holy See to retire

  1. Pageantmaster Ù† says:

    Who can blame him?

    1. The Roman Catholics left holding their sides from splitting with laughter as Lambeth Palace/ACO fields a team of idiotic revisionist loonies to go and talk to them at the worst and most useless ARCIC talks yet.

    2. The Church of England making a complete hash of any credible provision for the ‘Catholic’ end of the church.

    3. The Druid ignored by the vast majority of the Communion with whom Rome has much more to talk about and the American paymasters of Lambeth Palace and ACO manipulating like mad to get another twat appointed to Canterbury to protect their investment.

    I would say it was definitely a good time to get out.
