Bigots like Rick Santorum and NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, “are much more concerned about being perceived as bigots than whether they might actually be bigoted.”


Bigots More Concerned About Being Perceived As Bigots Than Whether They Are

Yep, you’re a bigot. by Zinnia Jones
¨...And no, your religion does not have the power to legitimize bigotry. Bigoted beliefs do not become excusable just because a church or a book endorses them. You don’t get a pass on bigotry by claiming that a god agrees with you. People came up with the very same justifications for all kinds of prejudice. It changes nothing. Like it or not, your religion will evolve. It might deny this, it might lag behind, but religions are dragged along with the moral climate of society at large. The Catholic Church doesn’t hold trials of alleged witches anymore. Mormon leaders decided that God changed his mind about allowing black people to be ordained. And some day, you will have to face the reality that your 2,000 years of moral theology are helpless next to a moment of moral reflection.¨ please read it all, HERE

I do not think Rowan Williams is a bigot. He is rather an arrogant institutionalist who is unable to care past his obsession with uniformity. That is sinful, and pathetic but it is not quite bigotry.

FWIW

I think Dr. Rowan Williams, with all self-perceived intellect, is unable to come up with spiritually healthy (and emotionally healthy) conversations on subjects outside of, yes, I agree, his ¨obsession with uniformity.¨ If he had been a different sort of man he would operate in a framework of pretend and spite...bigot, no, coward, yes.
