Sorry we liberated you guys

The title of this article was too good not to copy it.

Western Christians should show "institutional repentance" - should apologise - for the Iraq war, according to a working group of Church of England bishops led by the Rt Rev Richard Harries, the Bishop of Oxford. Just to make it clear what they mean, the bishops suggest a public meeting where Christian leaders would acknowledge, in front of "mainly Muslim" leaders, the wrongs done by the West.

So that’s what Galloway has been after all this time: the Archbishopric of Canterbury!

The impression given to the Islamic world by such an act, or even its proposal, is that the bishops of England had confirmed that the war against Iraq was a Christian crusade against Muslims.

As the actress said to the bishop: stick to liturgy.
