Rev Rowan Williams
Practicing Druid, Ecumenical, Pro-homosexual,
Pro-Freemason, and an unbeliever
‘Christians have to learn how to give an absolutely clear answer to the question, “why is this good news?”. Now, with Hope08, this vision is being extended, with great boldness to the whole country – and even more widely.’
 Archbishop of Canterbury, “Hope 2008 is a really remarkable vision that has grown out of the success of a number of local urban projects. Christians have to learn how to give an absolutely clear answer to the question, ‘why is this good news?’; ‘Soul in the City’ and all the related enterprises that have been going on are a wonderful example of how to give such an answer, in terms of the building of responsible positive communities. Now, with Hope 2008, this vision is being extended, with great boldness to the whole country – and even more widely. It deserves the warmest welcome. I thank God for the inspiration that has driven it and wish every blessing to all involved.“
(Comment) Where did the inspiration come from ?
 Yet he is a Druid, “This struck me as a remarkable poem written by a remarkable man, who is after all a cultural, Eisteddfod-style Druid himself. I was startled at the insight with which the world of the ancient Druid-as-shaman is depicted by an Anglican priest. Make no mistake: Rowan Williams is a very, very good poet, whose work is complex, compassionate and austere, with a luminous gift for word-music and metaphor.”
Many would argue that Druids are not pagans, but modern druids are Neo-Pagan’s, Quote  “Druids are Pagans. Originally, the term meant country dweller. It evolved to mean those who did not practice the Judaeo Christian Tradition.“
The early Celts practiced Druidism, a Shamanic religion. Originally, they worshipped the Goddess, also called the Lady and the God, her horned consort also referred to as the Lord and the Green Man. The Druids were influenced by GrecoRoman traditions and developed a pantheon of deities.
Early Christian missionaries adopted some Pagan traditions and customs to facilitate the conversion. Some scholars believe Catholic saints were given sacred status to reflect the Pagan deities. There are Pagan beliefs in the Goddess, the stern Father God and the human friendly God-Son who is part god and part man. The Virgin Mary would the Goddess, God, the stern father as evidenced by Judeo tradition and Jesus the Son.

Rev 17:5 – 6 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
 What Exactly is NeoPaganism?
The term refers to the revival of the Pagan or Shamanic religions, either by attempts at reconstruction, those who may have practiced these in secret because of fear of being persecuted as witches, syncreticism or an eclectic mix of various Pagan practices and beliefs.
The Pagans have beliefs in common, such as the four elements of nature, fire, earth, air and water. Some religions believe in nature spirits, those who lived within the elements and could be called on to help in working with the powers of the Universe for positive ends. The elements, nature spirits, are salamanders (fire), gnomes (earth), sylphs (air) and undines (water). There are subdivisions of some of these spirits.
Totem animals are another belief that many Pagans share. Native Americans are the best known of the Pagan religions that believe in the medicines and powers of the animals referred to as totems. There is a revival of this, but, now, totems are referred to as Power Animals. Most European Pagans shared the belief in totem animals, however, until relatively recently, this was not widely known. Some of the Oriental Shamanic people believe in animal totems as evidenced by Chinese astrology and other writings. The symbolism varied, according to the culture, but the belief in the powers of these animals was a common one.
While the main common belief is there is a Supreme Being and all in the Universe are inter-related and connected as one and are manifestations of the One, there are beliefs and practices that vary within the Shamanic, or Pagan, people.

Archbishop of Canterbury to visit Rome
Thursday 23 March
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is to visit His Holiness Pope Benedict XVIth in Rome later this year. The visit will mark the fortieth anniversary of the Archbishop Michael Ramsey’s meeting with Pope Paul VIth in 1966 and the founding of the Anglican Center in Rome in the same year.
Dr Williams met the Holy Father’s predecessor, Pope John Paul II, in the autumn of 2003; he travelled to Rome in April 2005 for the funeral of Pope John Paul II and returned for the Inaugural Mass of his successor. Dr Williams and Pope Benedict met briefly the following day.
Pope Benedict XVI and Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams shake hands after signing a joint statement after 25 minutes of private talks during their meeting at the Vatican Thursday, Nov. 23, 2006. They acknowledged there were ‘serious obstacles’ on the path to closer ties between Catholics and Anglicans, reflecting tensions over Anglicans’ blessings of same-sex unions and the ordination of women and decided to commit themselves to continuing dialogue.
Pope Benedict XVI meets Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and his wife Jane Williams at his private library on November 23, 2006, in Vatican City.
 Dr Williams said
“ I am very much looking forward to the visit and especially to meeting Pope Benedict once again. Forty years ago today [March 23rd] Archbishop Ramsey met Pope Paul VIth in what was a historic and ground-breaking visit to the Vatican. They exchanged fraternal greetings and gave thanks to God for the ‘new atmosphere of fellowship’ between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic church. The declaration which they signed the following day expressed their intent to engage in ‘a serious dialogue which, founded on the Gospels and on the ancient common traditions, may lead to that unity in truth, for which Christ prayed’‘
“ My visit this autumn is an opportunity to continue that rich tradition of visits between Canterbury and Rome, to reflect on the achievements of the last 40 years and on the future of those relations.”
As well as the Papal Audience, Dr Williams will also join in celebrations commemorating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Anglican Centre in Rome, and will hold meetings with officials of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. The visit is expected to take place in the autumn; further details from the programme will be announced later in the year.
 Archbishop Rowan Williams Strongly Pro-Homosexual
The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is strongly pro-homosexual. But he is equally strongly a Church conservative in terms of Church order. He strongly favors the approval of homosexuality, but equally strongly insists that the homosexualists must wait until the Church at large approves such a lifestyle. That puts him in direct conflict with the realities of Christian faith. He is going to get shot at from both sides.
He argues that there is more to homosexuality than Romans i, the passage most frequently cited by evangelicals where St Paul attacks the “unseemly” passions of men with men.
Dr Williams goes on to set out a possible case for active same-sex relationships by arguing that revisionists who support “sexual expression” for homosexuals may, like evangelicals, be trying to be faithful to the Bible.
His arguments, couched in diplomatic theology, make clear his support for committed gay partnerships and his belief that the Church’s traditional ban on homosexual activity should not apply to those in faithful gay relationships.
Dr Williams says that there are plenty of homosexual Christians who do not recognise themselves in Romans i, where St Paul condemns a society where “God gave them up unto vile affections”, where women turned to lesbian love and “the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burnt in their lust one toward another”.
 Archbishop sparks row after holding secret communion for gay clergy
By OLINKA KOSTER – More by this author » Last updated at 18:33pm on 31st December 2007
A row erupted yesterday after it emerged the Archbishop of Canterbury kept the details of a communion service for gay clergy so secret that he failed to inform the Bishop of London it was taking place in his diocese.
Dr Rowan Williams reignited the row that is causing divisions within the Anglican Church after agreeing to hold a Eucharist for homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clergy.
Details of the service, attended by around 100 people, emerged yesterday, with the Archbishop said to have spoken openly about the future for gay people in the church.
His critics expressed anger that as well as choosing to give communion at the meeting, he also failed to seek permission from the Right Rev Richard Chartres before making an “incursion” on his patch.
They said Dr Williams risked being seen as discourteous, with suggestions from some quarters that he was close to breaching canon law.
The service was held at the end of last year (2007) in All Hallows by the Tower, a 7th Century church in the City of London, after the original venue, the liberal St Peter’s Church in Belgravia, was “outed” on a hostile website.
 Rowan Williams apologises to Freemasons and Endorses Freemasonry.
By Chris Hastings and Elizabeth Day
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has been forced to apologise to Britain’s 330,000 Freemasons after he said that their beliefs were incompatible with Christianity and that he had rejected them from senior posts in his diocese.
“the Archbishop apologises for the “distress” he caused and discloses that his own father was a member of the Craft.”
Freemasons, many of whom are active members of the Church of England, reacted angrily to his disclosure that he “had real misgivings about the compatibility of Masonry and Christian profession”
A spokesman said the Archbishop was worried about the ritual element of Freemasonry, which has been seen as “satanically inspired”.
“He claims that his views were never meant to be public and were distorted by the media.”
He added: “The quoted statements about the ‘satanic’ character of the Masonic ceremonies and other matters did not come from me and do not represent my judgment. Since my late father was a member of the Craft for many years, I have had every opportunity of observing the probity of individual members.”
Dr Williams does not, in his letter, deny that he has misgivings about the role of Freemasons within the Church.
He wrote: “Where anxieties exist, however, they are in relation not to Freemasonry but to Christian ministers subscribing to what could be and often is understood [or misunderstood] as a private system of profession and initiation, involving the taking of oaths of loyalty.”
What does this say about Archbishop Williams?
Jhn 14:23-24 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
By promoting those things which are contrary to the teachings of Christ The Archbishop is not keeping the words of Christ, hence he does not love Christ in the truest sense,
Jhn 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Jhn 15:13-14 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
By not doing as Christ has commanded, and doing the exact opposite, the Archbishop has made himself one who is not a friend of Christ and placed himself outside of the Grace of God.
