Posted on 06/27/2013 6:32:03 PM PDT by haffast
Israel is the center of the world in so many ways, the archbishop of Canterbury said Thursday in Jerusalem. He stressed Israels legitimacy and right to security, and also spoke, in the context of persecution of Christians by Islamists in the Middle East, about the Christian imperative to love our enemies.
It was his maiden visit to the region since being appointed to one of the highest positions in the Protestant Church.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby, who has a Jewish father, is the leader of the Church of England and of 80 million Anglicans worldwide. He was enthroned in Canterbury on March 21.
Asked by reporters why he made a visit to Israel a priority so early in his term, he responded, This is the cradle of the three great world faiths. Its the cradle of our own faith, of Christian faith. Its where Jesus lived and walked and died and rose again. It is in so many ways the center of the world, in so many extraordinary ways. What possible reason could there be to delay?

love takes many forms.
not all the same.
you love someone who believes you’re crap and they can lie to you and be phony friends to you because their religion says that’s how you treat them and remain faithful to allah,
differently than someone who’s a brother or sister in Christ.
“Jerusalem: Eye of the Universe”
I hadn’t realized they had a new Archbishop of Canterbury. Is this one actually Christian or is he like the last several who only worshiped secular liberalism?
Well, since the Anglicans are looking at a project to create a “Christian centered religion that would also welcome pagans and non Christians,” who knows? I’d suspect he’s like his predecessors, but then, maybe that’s unfair and it’s simply that nobody has informed him of this project.
This one seems immeasurably better than that bearded druid, whatshisname.
What a stupid douche. Jerusalem is the cradle of Judaism and Christianity ONLY. There is NOTHING WHATSOEVER sacred to Islam. It is merely a military conquest they don't want to give up, and the Israeli were too stupid to make them leave in 1967 - unlike Spain which destroyed most of its mosques after liberation. Jerusalem is not mentioned ONCE in the evil Koran, whereas it is mentioned nearly 900 times in the Old and New Testaments.
