Startling news from the World Council of Churches

Filed under: Nothing in Particular — David Jenkins @ 8:13 am

The WCC has a new General Secretary with a “New Agenda” and – everyone should sit down for this bit – he has noticed that Christians are often in the minority and suffer from persecution:

Tveit said many Christians today are minorities in the communities and countries where they live, or in areas that are suffering from violence or extreme poverty, or both.

After this unusual flash of insight, the WCC GS makes a quick recovery to note that we really must do something about climate change, have dialogue with Islam and see each other as human.

A tiny spark of insight that was quickly extinguished by the familiar deadening blanket of bombastic clichés.
