et tutu, brutute?

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Nov 28, 2007

Archbishop Desmond Tutu "declares himself ashamed that, on the 'long journey from Calvary to Lambeth', the Church [of England] has become homophobic" -- An article in the Church Times tells us so. And the BBC's former South Africa correspondent explains why the Archbishop is deserving of our attention:

“[Tutu's] moral authority -- inside and outside the Church -- is unique. When he says his Church has lost its way, is obsessed with people's private lives rather than the great public issues of war and disease and oppression; that it is obeying fallible scripture rather than the divine priorities of Christ -- the world listens."

"Fallible scripture" is contrasted with "the divine priorities of Christ." Excellent. And where, exactly, did Desmond (and chums) learn about Christ's divine priorities?

    I continue to believe that so-called liturgical dance "happened" because the exquisite choreography and music of the chanted Solemn High Mass in what is now the extraordinary form was abandoned nationwide.

    Maybe this has been just a misunderstanding. Maybe Governor Sanford was in South America just to learn more liturgical dance moves. Ya never know.....
