Rowan Willimas signed this? Were pigs seen flying over Lambuth Palace as well?
When said pigs threaten the traditional tie between the Anglican Church and the U.K. government, not to mention the Anglican Church's traditional prerogatives, you can bet that Rowan William will sign pretty durn fast.
Think of them as limousine liberals, like this hypothetical bloke:
(Feb. 16, 2008): "When I learned that the bourgeois class will slowly be liquidated as monopolies grow and wealth gets concentrated into fewer hands, part of me felt relieved. It won't be easy tightening my belt come the crisis, but I know that I'm on the winning side of history. After all, in the higher philosophic sense, I didn't earn my trust fund: I was just born to it. So I'm glad I have advance warning, so I can take steps to make myself socially useful come the revolution."
(Oct. 16, 2008:) "For Gawd's sake, my stocks are being decimated! When the hell is that moron Bush going to do something about it!? And what's Paulson doing - shagging his secretary at Camp David!? I got bills to pay here!"
Something like this is what conservative populists wait for. "So your higher disinterest was just a pose, eh matey? About time you rejoined the real world."
They will eventually come back to the one true apostolic Catholic Church.
