Bishops for Ahmadinejad

I must have got it all wrong. It seems that Ahmadinejad isn't an anti-semitic war crazed demagogue after all. He is in fact a sincere, humane, peace loving liberal.
  1. The Bishop of Rochester, admired the fact that in releasing his prisoners, Iran’s president made reference to the religious context, including the prophet’s birthday and the “passing over” of Christ. This showed, according to the bishop, that the Iranians were operating in a “spiritual and moral tradition”, which is lacking in Britain.
  2. Tom Burns, the Roman Catholic bishop to Britain’s armed forces, praised the Iranians for their “act of mercy in accordance with their religion”.
  3. David Stancliffe, Bishop of Salisbury, will say in his sermon today that the reason Britain failed to persuade the United Nations to adopt more forthright language over Iran was because of the country’s diminished moral authority over Iraq. His quoted as saying.... “I still regret this country’s action and watch with dismay the way it has left us floundering around in other important areas like the Sudan,”.
With people like this running Britain's churches, who needs Iranian propaganda?
