Archbishop of Canterbury talks like a teenage beauty contestant.

From the Telegraph OnLine:
Archbishop: make the rich and powerful help the poor

"Political leaders, the rich and the powerful should be required by law to spend time each year helping the poor and needy, the Archbishop of Canterbury suggested yesterday."

Don't get me wrong - I get the point and the Archbishop is correct that Christians are supposed to serve. The more rich and powerful the Christian, the more he should be doing to serve others.

But that requirement comes from God to the Christian. It does not go through an intermediary. It is not - and should not be - a legal requirement. The Archbishop may well be a very nice guy, but this sort of syrupy silliness does nothing for evangelism. If anything, I believe it hurts the brand.
