Rowan Williams (and his clerical supporters) put me in mind of a fictive cleric. Same ambition, same ooze, same treacle, but different subjects on which to lavish that treacle and that ooze.  Mr. Collins, however, has one advantage over Rowan Williams: he speaks English, and not gobbledygook. ...Read More...

The noisy call to prayer is an act of dominance and aggression. The louder it is, the better.
