Voice of reason from new Archbishop

A voice of reason has made itself known to me.

Dr John Sentamu
England’s first black Archbishop has made a powerful attack on multiculturalism, urging English people to reclaim their national identity.
READ HIS BIO ON Wikipedia Below

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, said that “too many people were embarrassed about being English. “Multiculturalism has seemed to imply, wrongly for me, let other cultures be allowed to express themselves but do not let the majority culture at all tell us its glories, its struggles, its joys, its pains,”.
He went on to say that “the failure of England to rediscover its culture afresh would lead only to greater political extremism”.
He called for the English to rediscover their cultural identity by properly marking celebrations such as St George’s Day on April 23. “I speak as a foreigner really”. The English are somehow embarrassed about some of the good things they have done,
Multiculturalism as a concept failed to convey the essence of what it meant to be English”.
He described English culture as rooted in Christianity and, in spite of attempts by secularists to marginalise it, the Church still had a central role to play.

I would have to confess that until a couple of days ago I had never heard of this guy but now I would say he sounds like a really good bloke, so good luck to him.
