Absolute Insanity [UPDATED]

Well, if this is true [scroll down] - and as there's no link, I can't verify - then the Archbishop of Canterbury has something in common with my sister: they're both insane.

THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY DENOUNCED PASSION FILM AS PRO-CHRISTIAN. In his homily yesterday during a memorial service for Palestinian suicide bombers, the Right Reverend Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, denounced Mel Gibson's film 'The Passion of the Christ' as being 'overtly pro-Christian.' OVERTLY PRO-CHRISTIAN! What the blazes does he think the movie is all about.
I don't think any further comment is necessary, the event speaks for itself.

Turns out the whole thing was an Iconoclast spoof (kinda like a ScrappleFace spoof, only from Canada). Honestly, I'm glad - I don't like to think that the Church of England is going off the deep end - but (as others have already pointed out) it does say something about the times when this kind of thing doesn't seem too far from reality.

Thanks to The Limey Brit for the heads up. Hey, any relation to Frank J.'s Limey?
