Comments: more reactions to the archbishop's New Statesman article

Only 70,000 a year? It means he took a cut when he left academia -- for a much more difficult job. And is Lambeth Palace really a 5 star residence?

The people trying to make Rowan Williams a class war enemy are in the pay of the Murdochs, and using standard divide and conquer tactics to keep the poor mystified.

Most people I know will never make 70,000 a year, whether in US dollars or Euros. He's still an ivory-tower denizen speaking to promote his own public relations agenda.

It is well known, around the empire of his world, that Rupert Murdoch is not interested in embracing the cause of the poor and disenfranchised. One only has to read his newspapers to see that.

His view of the ABCs advocacy of the poor will be perpetuated in his papers. Don't take them too seriously. Rowan is at least pursuing the Gospel message of 'inclusivity' here, if not for LGBTs.
