From THE CHURCH TIMES (relating to rowan Williams' address to The Lutheran World Federation last week):
COMMENT: What on earth is going on?!!!
We've got a Russian Orthodox deacon running around London telling women to take their trousers off, and now the Grand Tufti is encouraging the Lutherans to turn their backs on the ancient and God given institution of marriage.
Ah! Perhaps this is a cunning plan. When all the Lutherans have shacked up together he can get same sex blessings through synod on the basis that marriage is so old hat that even the Germans don't bother with it anymore. (Yes, I know, there are just as many Scandinavian Lutherans as German ones, but "Swedish Lutheran Shacks Up With Partner" is not, what you would call, news).
