I must say, when i saw “Former Archbishop” on the title i thought the article was going to be something way different (aka: another church scandal).

He always seemed too decent a person to get caught up in religion.

How long do we have to wait for the magic man in the sky to solve climate change.

This Friday, UK students are planning a coordinated mass walkout, with 100,000 students expected to participate. It’s a prelude to a week of even bigger protests planned for London in April by Extinction Rebellion (XR), who have called for official UK governmental recognition of the climate crisis and zero emissions nationwide by 2025, overseen by a citizens’ assembly in charge of a transition to a sustainable economy.

Also in the US. Friday’s the day. Dat shit is awn.

I was out for a beer the other day, sitting next to a middle aged couple at the bar. They were both glued to their phones the entire time, occasionally showing each other what was on their screens.
Damn Gen-Xers these days.

I bet they like avocado too…

He was Archbishop of Canterbury. Does that have anything to do with religion?
