Ignorance is Bliss (For the Archbishop of Canterbury)

"All that is necessary for the forces of evil to take over is that enough good men to do nothing"  Edmund Burke


The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, has unilaterally, and with no factual information decided that countries in Africa kill Christians because of the Episcopal Church's position of allowing the same rights to  LGBT Anglicans as it does to all who worship in our fashion.  The archbishop has determined, upon opening a grave of 369 "Christians" that they died because of LGBT rights. 

In the archbishop's own words,  "Why can’t we just do it now? (the question pertains to including LGBT fully in the rights and privileges
‘Because the impact of that on Christians in countries far from here, like South Sudan, like Pakistan, Nigeria and other places would be absolutely catastrophic and we have to love them as much as the people who are here.
‘I’ve stood by a graveside in Africa of a group of Christians who’d been attacked because of something that had happened far, far away in America. And they were attacked by other people because of that.
‘The mass grave had 369 bodies in it and I was standing with the relatives. That burns itself into your soul, as does the suffering of gay people in this country.’"

Justin Welby, resign (good man or not, ready or not, YOU harm other human beings, Anglicans/others)

I’ve never seen the version of the Burke quotation you cite. I have only seen: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” See, for example, here. Of course, the meaning is the same.

Linoel Deimel You are so right. I was writing that from memory and I really did not get the quote perfect. I do know that sentiment is all there.
