News: Rowan-Williams rejects teaching of creationism

the Archbishop of Canterbury, the most senior cleric in the Church of
England and the de facto leader of the world wide anglican church has
pubiclically rejected the teaching of creationism in an
interview with the Guardian.

more here, and it will probably get worse with the whole faith schools
nonsense being banded about just now.
