Archbishop Praises Terrorist.

According to the BBC, today, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, will tell the congregation at Canterbury Cathedral:
"The present financial crisis has dealt a heavy blow to the idea that human fulfilment can be thought about just in terms of material growth and possession."
Williams will then tell his huddled flock of sheep that religion is the only way to achieve fulfilment, and gives this as a fine example:
"It's worth remembering that Paul of Tarsus joined the Christian community not as a well-meaning religious enquirer but as someone who had been the equivalent of a terrorist gunman, someone who had supervised the activities of a private militia devoted to abducting and imprisoning members of the Christian sect. He is a perfectly intelligible figure in the back streets of modern Beirut or Baghdad."
Presumably Williams means by this that religious communities should give support and succour to murderous terrorists and that they, in turn, should feel safe in seeking refuge under the holey umbrella (or should that be 'holy umbrella') of religion.

Don't you think that your exhortation constitute an offence under the Terrorism Act 2006, Dr Williams?
