Quote of the Day: Defending privilege

The ability of Christians to express their faith in public is not threatened by secularism – quite the opposite. What may be threatened are the trappings of power that Archbishops and other Christian elites enjoy: the palaces, the political offices, the media exposure and the power to shape public services. A cynic might ask whether the war on secularism had more to do with protecting their privileges than the interests of the masses.

Martin Robbins on Lord Carey, a man who seems so determined to defend his privileges that he doesn’t care that doing so leaves his church looking like a bitter, bigoted, anachronism that we’d all be better off without.
