Mmm! Fresh mutton!
The Church of Wales' Welsh language magazine contained one the the cartoons that made the rounds after peace broke out. It was not one of the Danish dozen, but it was commenting on the mayhem.
"The drawing - which was from the French magazine France Soir - shows the Prophet Muhammad sitting on a heavenly cloud with Buddha, and Christian and Jewish deities.
He is being told 'don't complain... we've all been caricatured here'. "
The Archbishop gagged on his tea when he saw the drawing.
"I've unreservedly apologised to my Muslim colleagues and they've been very gracious and I've said to them this in no way reflects the policy or attitude in the Church in Wales." -- The Archbishop of Wales, Dr. Barry Morgan
There was no indication of local Muslim outrage. Apparently he surrendured without a shot.
Dr. Morgan: You have no Muslim colleagues. None. Zero. Muslim are not part of the church. Your responsibility is the church, not the outside world.
A bishop is a shepherd. The staff you are neglecting is not just for guiding the flock. It is also a weapon for the protection of the flock. When the wolves come prowling around you don't take pity on the poor, hungry cubs and send them off with a lamb or two. You bop the wolf on the head to show that you mean business.Your shepherds are asleep, O king of Assyria; your nobles slumber. Your people are scattered on the mountains with none to gather them.
-- Nahum 3:18
