Rowan Williams takes Mugabe to task in Zimbabwe sermon

Dr Rowan Williams PC, DPhil, DD, FBA the 104th...Image via WikipediaThe Guardian: "The archbishop of Canterbury has risked angering the Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, ahead of a crucial meeting with him, by attacking the country's lawlessness and comparing it with the "greed of colonialists and imperalists".

In a brave and possibly career-defining appearance at Harare's national stadium, Rowan Williams told a crowd of more than 15,000 that it was tragic that so many lived in daily fear of attack if they failed to comply "with what the powerful require of them"."
