Hypocritical Church

So Sorry?Did you see Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, swaggering at the head of a procession with his sidekick Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, on yesterday's Walk of Witness through London to mark the 200th anniversary of Britain's abolition of the slave trade? Did you also see his symbolically freeing a slave from a yoke? What a sickening display of hypocrisy! So sorry indeed! Not only did the Anglican Church condone slavery, preach in favour of it, own slaves and make money out of their sweated labour, but also it demanded their souls. It forced them to believe in the white man's god. According to BBC News, "the average London church-goer is now black". This is the legacy of slavery. Will Dr Williams set their minds free to believe in whatever African gods their forebears worshipped? Of course not. He'll keep them on bended knee to his white god. So sorry? Pull the other leg, Archbishop.
