Entirely the Stuff of Legend

The Archbishop of Canterbury has informed us, just in time for Christmas, that the story of the three wise men was nothing more than a “legend.” HT: Frank Turk. Yes, I can see how the concept of “wise men” would seem to a churchman in Bishop Rowan’s environment to be entirely the stuff of legend. NB: When I posted this, I had only read the Telegraph article. Seeing the comments below I went back and found the whole interview in context, and, having read it, it is very plain that the Telegraph misrepresented and misquoted the Archbishop. My apologies for passing on bum dope.

And on a different subject, but not really, John Derbyshire has written a fine defense of Ron Paul supporters over at National Review.
