Shouldn't religion stand for something?

Aren’t religions supposed to stand for something? (I think we’re against murder, but if we say it, we’ll lose members. Hey, let’s put those pesky 10 commandments up for a vote).

Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, apologized to gays and lesbians who have felt undervalued by him, but he also argued against equality now. By that he means equality is important, but donations are more important and bigots outspend non-bigots, so no equality until we pony up.

But then this isn’t surprising. The Anglican Church in Uganda supports the kill-the-gays bill, according to the UK Guardian.

So Williams’ seeming wavering on equal rights isn’t that surprising. He’s not even firmly against murder.
