Unspeakable Cunt Of The Day: Dr Rowan Williams

Many fine people have come from Wales: Sir Anthony Hopkins, for instance, or Donald Swann. However, Wales has also produced its fair share of total cunts too: one immediately thinks, for instance, of Neil "Welsh Windbag" Kinnock and his equally awful family—turds of the very first water.

Wales also produced today's Spectacularly Unspeakable Cunt Of The Day.
In the James Callaghan Memorial lecture, Dr Williams challenged the argument that free speech must always prevail, saying that society had to protect the sensibilities of people who were not in a position to defend themselves.

"It is one thing to deny a sacred point of reference for one's own moral or social policies; it is another to refuse to entertain - or imagine - what it might be for someone else to experience the world differently," he said.

"And behind this is the nagging problem of what happens to a culture in which, systematically, nothing is sacred."

Whilst it might be amusing that one useless bastard might be speaking at a lecture named after another totaly useless bastard—with all due respect, i.e. none—go fuck yourself, Williams. As Harry Haddock says...
You are a bastard of the highest order. I will not deny myself and others free speech in order that you can worship a sky fairy, others can worship kiddy fiddlers, or Tom Cruse can worship aliens.

Lots of people think your religions are at best shit, and at worst fucking evil. Many others think that you and your kind are twats for putting on various styles of frocks and mumbling nonsense to a non-existent entity every so often. I may or may not think this; it isn’t relevant.

What is relevant is that I have every right to say such things, irrespective of your sensibilities, just as I have a right to call Gordon Brown a one eyed evil cunt irrespective of how that makes his wife feel.

So yes, free speech must always prevail. Now piss off.

Quite so. The only good thing about Dr Rowan Williams is that, being a Christian, once I've stabbed him in one side of his face, he has to turn the other cheek so I can easily pierce the other side of his smug, hairy twat-face.

And then we can start calling him "Kit" Williams. As in "assembly kit". As in one lamp-post; one length of rope; one illiberal, Welsh, Archbishop of Canterbury: some assembly required.

Dr. Williams doesn't even know his own faith's history, apparently.

Judaism and Christianity have never feared 'hurtful speech' from others. For heaven's sake, the early martyrs positively relished 'hurtful speech', since their peaceful stand against others' accusations itself acted as a powerful advertisement for Christianity.

Moreover, a true Christian will fear nothing 'of this world'--least of all 'speech'; at worst he can be killed, but even that--for the believer--is merely a passage to a 'better place'.

Makes me wonder of what, particularly, Dr. Williams is afraid. Certainly he shows none of the grit earlier Christians displayed, to say nothing of those who are still persecuted for practicing their faith in places like China, Arabia, etc.

May I suggest totally disproportionate share of cunts, like the entire fucking nation. Donald Swann wasn't really welsh since both his parents were refugees whose car brakes must have failed causing them to only stop when they ran out of gas in Llanelli. When they got the brakes fixed they moved to London.

Anyone who expects the welsh to be anything but mooching, ignorant, useless bastards will always be disappointed.
Jews definitely do fear free speech,have you not heard of more than a few that are presently languishing in various jails around europe,specifically for holding opinions that are not to the jews liking?
As for that embarrasment to the human race ,williams,stake and faggots would be apropriate,while he has probable already sampled the faggots,he still needs an apointment with the stake.

AFAIAC, nothing is sacred, never was and never will be. This is a made up word used by sky-fairy worshippers and beardy middle-eastern twats etc to justify their power, i.e. religion.

I haven't rated Rowin Williams since I read his frankly execrable scholarship on ecclesiastical and theological history from when he occupied the Chair of Divinity at Oxenford.

Since he become Archbish, though, he's got so much worse. His trendy lefty views mesh with the worst authoritarian tendencies of the church (possibly explaining his fetishisation of fucking Islam in the process) and the result is the great big piles of shite he spouts on a daily basis on topics he has little to no understanding of.

Fucking twonk. An empty cassock full of lefty platitudes, that's all he is. And he looks like a fucking constipated oran-utang.

Thanks to that first anonymous poster who have laid out the case for all "true" Christians out there; that we are not represented by any earthly authority but by God himself (or MR. sky fairy to you heathens ;-)) - this utterly miserable excuse for a human being does not represent the God I serve.
My beliefs? That God has a plan for every one of us that we are free to take up (if) when we choose; I believe it is a better existence (and as the saying goes: how can million chinese be wrong? namely the millions languishing in communist jails for their beliefs) but one which is gained on an individual basis - not through coercion or subterfuge into group-think like the Muslims or Dr. Williams envisage, but because people see something in me that they want themselves.

Some well balanced commnents here albeit expressed in the kitchesque manner. I have a large soul and a deep spiritual life it makes me interesting to drippy women and has done good service before the advent of Mrs. N.

However ,despite this depth and these spiritual concerns I cannot imagine what difference it should make what anyone says. There is a place for politeness perhaps but it can quickly become an irritating constraint.

He has a DD or a DPhil in Divinity - one or the other. He was an academic before he become Archbish of Cunterbury and wrote crap on the Patristic tradition, early Christianity, Arianism and what-not.

"Dr. Williams doesn't even know his own faith's history, apparently."

It's probably not required to become an archbishop, any longer. You probably don't need to have any faith in God either!

"The Rev is just putting his metaphorical beach towel on a blasphemy-outrage sun lounger before they are all taken."

Lol! A particularly apt metaphor...
He and Huckaloon, who thankfully is starting to wallow in the primary, would have lots to chat about. It does not shock me at all to see a devout Christian coming up with fascist ideas.

The full lecture is here. Williams even sides with the bastards who wanted to kill Rushdie; it's those defending the author who were the aggressive, ignorant bigots, and the ones demanding his death were just a "relatively militant... disadvantaged minority". Cunt of the Day? I reckon he's got Cunt of the Year already sown up. Extracts:

Richard Webster, in his immensely intelligent and independent essay on the Rushdie affair, observes that absolute freedom of speech is not in fact either a possible or a desirable state of political affairs... Webster – who is not a religious believer of any kind – offers some extraordinary examples of 'liberal' aggression and ignorant bigotry in his account of the reactions in 1989 and 1990 to the furore over the fatwa against Rushdie...
Webster points out how in 1989/90 Muslim groups in the UK took to a relatively militant response to Rushdie as and when it became clear that the literary and political establishment had nothing to say to their sense that their faith had been publicly and damagingly misrepresented and their sensibilities shaken. For groups like those in West Yorkshire who were at the forefront of militant reaction in Britain, the overwhelming feeling that animated their protests was that they, as a disadvantaged minority with the most limited access to any sort of public voice, were being left at the mercy of a powerful elite determined to tell them what their faith really amounted to and to remind them that they had to get used to being seen – never mind the realities of their social and economic position here – as essentially the representatives of a foreign and threatening power. The same is true of the furore over the Danish cartoons: the Muslim community in Denmark is neither large nor militant, yet the cartoon issue was framed as if these products were a sign of courageous defiance towards a hegemonic power.

The Archbishop calls for law to recognize certain groups as worthy of protection as they don't have access to mainstream "discourse".

So if you say something like "Christians are a load of *****s" it would be protected as free speech,

whereas if you said "Scientologists are a load of *****s" it would be against the law.

Equality before the law? Passé it seems.

docbud - Your argument in favour of 'free speech' would carry a little more weight if you didn't use yours to churn out racist, ignorant hate speech of the first order..

But hey, I'd defend to the death your right to churn out puerile rubbish until the sheep come home..

On a lighter note, for fuck's sake don't invite Lawrence Boyce from 'Lib Dem Voice' onto this blog, or he will still be following up this argument in February...

Except the Welsh aren't a race.

Dr Williams is entitled to his view, even if he is obviously thick as shit - that's the beauty of free speech.

Anon 3:00 - You must be simply thrilled to be able to say all these swear words and mad accusations on a public site. Are you around 17?

Orang utan is spelled thusly.

Orang means "person" and utan means "jungle". [Not 'rain forest' incidentally, of which there is no such thing.] So, 'jungle person' - and that is certainly what they look like when you see them up close. Which you have not.

Otherwise, your lefty, atheist dated boilerplate is such a jaw-cracking yawner that I didn't read any of it. All a bit lefty Thirties ... Been said. Been done. Headline: No one shocked.

This is not to say that Rowan Williams has any business heading up a major religion.

If they were not the representatives of a foreign and threatening power, why were they threatening to kill an writer on the orders of the Iranian government???????

In the words of CS Lewis, a theologian with more intellect in his backside than Dr Williams has in total.....

Logic, what do they teach them in these schools????
Roger Thornhill said…
re: db extract @08:47 and what serf said.

Webster Translation: does not like the idea that groups are showing themselves up for who they really are (ranting hypocritical paranoid carpet munchers with shit for brains) and would like them pandered to so they can both retain their delusion of superiority and "specialness", no not delusion - Webster and Williams want them to ACHIEVE it at our expense!

These two self-loathers, appeasers and apologists can both boil their own heads. Twice.

>>>He has a DD or a DPhil in Divinity

Thanks. I thought as much - a Professorship in Harry Potter would be more relevant.
Well - predictable from the Devil.

Clearly Rowan Williams represents everything that is wrong with the Church of England today. Gutless, liberal-lefty cultural relativism and an intense desire to present ones arse to the Muslims for ravaging. (I somehow think that that is not *quite* what Jesus meant when He said 'turn the other cheek'!). The new Bishop of Oxford is likewise unctuous in his approval of the local Islamic ghetto's determination to broadcast their raucous call to prayer through loudspeakers here, against the will of the vast majority of local people. People like Williams and Co., plus of course all the shallow, officious, 'pc' little NuLabour arseholes who infest every organisation from the government to the parish councils, are the reason that this country will see Islamic law and autonomous Muslim enclaves within the next decade, possibly as a prelude to full Islamicisation in the near future. Either we stand up - now - for the principles like freedom of speech, which 1000's fought and died for, and people like Williams are so anxious to give away, or we can look forward to a future of bigotry, fear and oppression for centuries to come.
Oh - and whoever 'Englishman' may be (is his second name Mosley, by any chance?) - of course I uphold his right to post that nasty little bit of anti-semitism (that is what free speech means) - but now he's done it could he kindly go off and fuck himself - preferably to death?

(1) No. I'm around 32 and hold a rather fetching doctorate in a field cognate to the good Archbish Williams'.

(2) What accusations, you mad cunt?

(3) And, erm, have you ever actually read Devil's Kitchen? It's not exactly the right site for people who get their knickers in a bunch at the thought of people swearing.

(4) Go fuck yourself.

>Orang utan is spelled thusly.<

Fuck me rigid. A one letter typo. You've got me bang to rights. You worthless fucking dolt.

Also, just what the fuck are you twittering about? I haven't seen fucking great big orange apes up close therefore I can't comment on the Archbishop of Canterbury?

Please just spare your family the shame of your continued existence, you pathetic fucking animal, and go kill yourself. Your parents will breathe a sigh of relief and your soi-disant friends can stop pretending they like you (they don't - they merely pity you as they pity all rubber-faced mongoloids).

>Otherwise, your lefty, atheist dated boilerplate is such a jaw-cracking yawner that I didn't read any of it. All a bit lefty Thirties ... Been said. Been done. Headline: No one shocked.<

Lefty? What are you smoking in that crackpipe? You say it's lefty and the say you didn't actually read it in the first place... Are you a complete fucking moron? Don't answer that - we all know you are.

And, for your information, having researched and written on areas the good Dr. Williams claims to be a specialist in, I feel rather better placed to criticise him than you. M'kay, love?

Also, fuck off, you ball-gargling cockmongler.

Btw, I am right about all those Blog docs - they're all, deep down, a bunch of leftie scumbags. If I am wrong, show my a blogdoc who isn't and a post that shows a genuine ideological position that is more of the Right than the Left.

Sorry for how you demean the word cunt by assigning it to Rowan Williams. A cunt is a useful, holy thing designed to perpetuate the human race. Williams is a decayed intellectual unable to confront the deadly threat posed to Western Christian society by Islamist ideology, its pernicious sharia laws and its terrorist exponents.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
