ABC on Lourdes

The Archbishop of Canterbury is under fire for going to Lourdes, preaching at Lourdes, and in general for being a “papal puppet.” Jeremy Brooks, of the Protestant Truth Society levels his criticism:

Lourdes represents everything about Roman Catholicism that the Protestant Reformation rejected, including apparitions, Mariolatry and the veneration of saints.

The archbishop’s simple presence there is a wholesale compromise, and his sermon — which included a reference to Mary as ‘the mother of God’ — is a complete denial of Protestant orthodoxy.

I’m sure it will come as a revelation, but anybody can claim “orthodoxy,” not just conservative Catholics.

At a time when our country is crying out for clear biblical leadership, it is nothing short of tragic that our supposedly Protestant archbishop is behaving as little more than a papal puppet.

Good thing Rowan Williams doesn’t post on the blogosphere. It could be worse. File another under “Believers Behaving Badly.”
