Archbishop Sentamu Calls Bankers "hyenas"
Yesterday the Archbishop of York spoke to the Worshipful Company of International Bankers in London. According to Ruth Gledhill, who received a copy of the Archbishop's speech, he "gave them a good insight into the fiery furnace that awaits those who fail to understand how the love of money is the root of all evil. "
Here are two faithful Anglicans' responses to the Archbishop of York's criticism of usury and greed among British bankers.
Good on the Archbishop of York! I live in a state that actively promotes and protects usury... our lone member of Congress, pretty liberal on many things, was the ONLY Democrat to vote against a bill to limit credit card interest and fee hikes!

The archbishop is right when he speaks about money,power and greed. Perhaps he should look first in his own Anglican communion. TEC is all about greed, power and money. They will spend more money suing Christians than they give to MDG's. Rowan prefers to sit and have yaba daba doo sessions because he needs the TEC Money. That is what is running the communion instead of faith in Christ and his Holy Word. So please take the plank out of your own eye first !
