Safe as houses

"New study shows..."

Apparently, a study has shown that there is widespread support (in the US) for people to believe whatever they want to believe, so long as there is little or no action taken upon those beliefs.

The trend is clear. Vague talk is safer than clear action. Personal beliefs are good, but not if these doctrines lead to actions that indicate that some beliefs are right and others wrong.

Seeking is good, but finding is bad. Judging is even worse.

Well, I'd say that, starting with Archlayman Dr. Rowan Williams, the entire Anglican and Catholic clergy of the UK is perfectly safe.

Yep. 'Cause you know. Staying safe is what we are called to as Christians.

In an age of "I'm OK, You're OK" spirituality, he added, "American spirituality has glorified 'searching' for spiritual meaning, but de-emphasized 'finding.' In other words, it is good to be looking for spirituality, but it is intolerant to actually believe you have found a right faith.

Archlayman Dr. Rowan Williams

As an Anglican, I take great offense at that.

The correct term for Dr. Williams is archdruid.

Thank you.
