Yeah, I know this is an old story but I didn’t know it, and I figure I am not the only one. Can this explain his usual stupid quotes regarding Islam?

The next Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, in head gear at his induction as a Druid

Dr Williams described claims of paganism as “offensive”

The new Archbishop of Canterbury has been inducted as a druid in a centuries-old Celtic ceremony.

Dr Rowan Williams, the current Archbishop of Wales, said that he had been “saddened” by the misrepresentations about the ceremony, which sparked concern about pagan links.

Some people have reached the wrong conclusion about the ceremony,” he said.

“If people had actually looked at the words of the hymns and text used they would have seen a very Christian service.”

Dr Williams became a member of the highest of the three orders of the Gorsedd of Bards – a 1,300-strong circle of Wales’ key cultural contributors – in a ceremony at this year’s National Eisteddfod celebration of Welsh culture in St Davids, Pembrokeshire.
