MadPriest and the truly beautiful Wormwood's Doxy brought Monica Attard's interview with Archbishop Jensen to my attention: there's not much to say that hasn't already been said elswhere, although it's worth repeating that his failure to hurl the standard "The Bible makes it clear that leadership is not a role God has given to women" vitriol marks a significant compromise of his traditional Matthian stance. Certainly the faithful over on the Sydney Anglican Media forums are strangely silent on the matter of ythis interview - always a good sign something beyond the pale has just occurred. They're not even spouting the usual "He was edited to make him appear to say something different to what he meant" rhetoric...
... which is more than they did for this clip. Produced by the Chaser team (the guys who got arrested for entering the APEC security zone while wearing an Osama bin Laden costume), the faithful-but-nasty were all adamant that in this their man was the victim of an anti-christian editorial conspiracy.
Make up you own mind: the +Jensen in this certainly looks, sounds, and acts like the one I once knew. And any mischevious editing, if it has been done, is so tight that I certainly can't spot it.
Besides, it's very, very funny. So who cares?
