Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

HEY ANGLICAN LEFTIES— this is real Christian justice on the march. And remember: Christian leftists in the West did helped put the monster Mugabe into office. The shameful Anglican connection? Then-primate Abp. Ted Scott of Canada, the cuddly leftist, was actually Moderator of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches from 1975-1983. The useful idiots of the WCC were busy promoting peace-n-justice Marxist activism, supported USSR-backed revolutionaries, and was infiltrated by Soviet agents. While millions prayed for freedom under Soviet rule, it is said of good old Red Ted that “What he didn’t like, and has rejected all his life, were doctrinaire ideologies or theologies, which denied a person the opportunity to think or choose diverse positions.” Huh.. no kidding. Shame on Anglicans, Shame on Canada, Shame on Ted — certainly one of the fathers of the current Canadian Anglican leftward swing and worldly collapse.
