The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, has used his Easter message to hit out at "wooden-headed bureaucratic silliness" which, he says, has combined with "well-meaning and completely misplaced anxiety about giving offence to non-Christians" to create legal wrangles over such issues as whether people should be able to wear crosses when at work. While noting such issues should not be equated with the "real persecution" faced by Christians in some countries, Archbishop Williams added that there nonetheless remains a problem in countries such as the UK where there has arisen a "strange mix of contempt and fear towards the Christian faith" and went on to say that Christians should perhaps use such opportunities to explain "what the cross actually means". What do you think?
