The Archbishop of Canterbury has in effect announced that God has abdicated his responsibility for the universe.
Speaking yesterday, he said just as God gave humans free will to do "immeasurable damage" to themselves as individuals it seemed "clear" they had the same "terrible freedom" as a human race.
"I think that to suggest that God might intervene to protect us from the corporate folly of our practices is as unchristian and unbiblical as to suggest that he protects us from the results of our individual folly or sin," he said.
So there we have it from the man who knows more about God than anyone else. He is the leader of the worldwide Anglican community and so he must know.
God will not save the innocent from the effects of global warming, and that comes straight from the horse’s mouth. It is no use praying for help from God – he’s abdicated.
