Prognostication of the Day

I peek into my crystal ball, and I see ++Rowan Williams swimming the Tiber upon retirement, and becoming Mr. Williams, Roman Catholic lay person.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised. I honestly don't think +Rowan is in this for the power--I suspect he would be much happier as a lay person, so he could write his theological tomes without anyone bothering him.

I don't think he has any evil intent either. I just think that's where his heart is inclined.

I have long thought he wants to do a TOny Blair.

Sad that he'll wait for retirement. Mr. Williams could go now, and I'd wish him Godspeed.

Coming to this rather late; haven't kept up with the blog world.

I don't buy it. I don't think even the ABC is that disfunctional. How many times does he need to be ignored, belittled, and kicked in the teeth? I think even he sees it's an abusive relationship.

And, I think he really is committed to the CoE and the Anglican Communion. All of his feeble machinations really are an attempt to try to preserve them, as misguided and counterproductive those attempts may appear.
