But because Janet Albrechtsen is not a supporter of terrorism, she didn’t ask, “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest”? But she does ask all the right questions of the dhimmi cleric Peter Carnley, a practioner par excellence of moral equivalence. From The Australian, with thanks to Kevin:
SHOWING a distinct distrust in God delivering the right result on Saturday, Peter Carnley, the outgoing head of Australia’s Anglican Church, announced last weekend that on Iraq and mandatory detention, Australia was a “nation hell-bent on a course of disturbingly questionable morality”. A week out from the October 9 federal election, Carnley used the opening of the General Synod in Fremantle to deliver an intensely political address. The Primate is nothing if not wily. Just in case voters had become distracted by dreary economic matters or just in case we had forgotten his views, Carnley repeated them….
Alas, it’s a stretch to take Carnley’s moral guidance seriously, so engulfed is he by moral relativism. On Iraq, Carnley told his congregation that the coalition of the willing had, in liberating Iraq from Saddam Hussein, resorted to terrorist tactics. Which “terrorist tactic”, Dr Carnley? Hijacking civilian planes and flying them into skyscrapers full of civilians? Sending suicide bombers into a Bali nightclub and blowing up more innocents with a car bomb outside? Wiring a Beslan school with explosives and slaughtering children who dared to cry?
