Times are tough these days for the Anglican Church. Not only are they considering a schism with their American churches to get the gay out, but this Reuters photo indicates that their leader, the Archbishop of Canterbury, is a disembodied head.

Floating Head of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the leader of the Anglican Church

That guy scares the hell out of me.

Beware of men past 50 who won't trim their eyebrows. Every one of them harbors secret passions within the heart.


 

I don't get it, why would The Amazing Randi consider leading the C of E?


 

He's also the first Druid Archbishop of Canterbury.

Honk if you think most religions suck!


 

Rogers, if the Archbishop scares the hell OUT of you, then I guess he's doing his job well, isn't he?


 

considering a schism with their American churches to get the gay out

Ozzie Guillen can get that gay out in three easy steps, and the cleanup's a breeze!


 

In spite of the spooky photo, and in spite of his thinking "theology" is an admirable pursuit, he is actually a pretty reasonable guy. best leader of a major religion we could hope for.

his wikipedia page has some good stuff:

"and in spite of his thinking "theology" is an admirable pursuit, he is actually a pretty reasonable guy. best leader of a major religion we could hope for."

When a religious leader plays to the agnostic crowd- you know he's doing something wrong.


 

Didn't he play Edward Longshanks in Braveheart?

Just wondering...


 

Baphomet, anyone?

I only say that in jest.


 

I'm having "That Hideous Strength" flashbacks here...


 

Zardoz!


 

Looks like the "Great and Powerful OZ."

Now, what's going on behind the curtains?

Sad to watch the Episcopal Church destroy itself.


 

A perfect portrait from the Archbishop's point of view, because, as he so well knows, he is so far ahead of the rest of us.


 

I wonder if there are enough wicked witches in the west for all of us to be saved, and if we cant get the witch's broom, will a Dyson vacuum cleaner do?


 

Plan 9 From Outer Space strikes again!


 

Reminds one of the founder of the C of E who was rather fond of beheadings.

Off with his head!

A great C of E tradition.


 

Eek! I just read the article.

Divide to unite?

Trying to preserve the unity of the C of E against schism? Cuz that would be bad witness and we'd lose Anglicans?

Again, I refer to the aforementioned founder of the C of E, now getting a taste of his own medicine. What goes around comes around.


 

Uncle Mikey:

You can get the church out of the gay, but you can never get the gay out of the church!


 

I guess you can buy Stanley Kubrick's head on Ebay just like Ray Smuckles bought Kieth Moon's.

("Do NOT shoot that head, Theodor. You are a lot of things, but you are not a guy who shoots a head.")


 

Meeting Radical Islam halfway?


 

I note that Glenn Reynolds has picked this up, but what intrigues me here is that Reynolds adheres to transhumanism, and his biggest heroes -- Raymond Kurzweil and Aubrey de Grey -- plan to have their own heads removed and frozen when the time comes. Strikes me as somewhat more bizarre than some cheesy trick photography.


 

While I'm not over 50 yet, I do trim my eyebrows.


 

I'm an Episcopalian. But I keep thinking of the country music lyric: " You gotta stand for somthin' or you'll fall for anything."
I think I need to stand for trimmed eyebrows and less scary photography.


 

Hi Jeanne. Me too. What would Lewis say???


 

Does it talk?


 

I wonder if the Scientologists might be interested in picking off the "head" of the C of E to run one of their "programming" units.


 

I think I'm now an Ecopalian 'cause that picture sure scared the 'pis' out of me.


 

ME TOO!!! He does creep me out! Word, sista! For all that is head. This is going to replace the whale in my nightmares. YAY! Good for you! IGUGO!


 

Why is everyone talking about his eyebrows i'm more concerned about his beard and the fact that he dont have da BODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!
'I rest my case!'


 

THE ANGLICAN(ENGLISH) SCHISM (SCHISMATICS) WERE SCREWED FROM THE DAY HORNY HENRY 8,THE 400 LB BUTCHER AND SELF PROCLAIMED POPE OF ENGLAND AND A HOST OF APOSTATE BISHOPS AND PRIESTS RUPTURED 1500 YEARS OF ENGLANDS ALLEGIANCE TO THE PATRIARCH OF ROME, THE REAL POPE. YUP AND THATS THE REASON THAT NOW IN 2007 THOUSANDS OF ANGLICANS, NO TENS OF THOUSANDS ARE LEAVING THE ANGLICAN HERESY FOR ROME (THEIR RETURNING HOME), NOT JUST INFORMED LAY FOLK BUT ANGLICAN BISHOPS AND WHOLE PARISHES ARE SEEKING UNION WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. THEY EVEN HAVE (ANGLICAN-RITE) PARISHES WORLDWIDE TO ACCOMODATE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF ANGLICANS WHO ARE REDISCOVERING THEIR LEGITIMATE ROOTS. I'M ONE OF THEM. PACEM/PAX/SHALOM


 

A Rowan Williams Moonbat Christmas

As Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams holds the top rung on the rickety ladder known as the Anglican Church. This year he's celebrating Christmas by publicly debunking various details of the yuletide "legend." Instead of celebrating the birth of Christ,...


 

I may sound somewhat traditional but I do feel that people who mock the church and/or its' leaders are risking more than they would care to lose. It is in our nature to raise existentialist questions and for many of us that means there is an afterlife governed by God. I enjoy the conversations that I have with friends who are agnostic or aetheist. However, if their responses were limited to criticism of someone's appearance, I would lose interest quickly.
