Jesus would be with St Paul's protesters this Christmas, says Archbishop of Canterbury- from the Daily Mail UK

from the Article:

Jesus would spend Christmas with the St Paul’s Cathedral protesters, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday.

Dr Williams said in his article: ‘One of the slogans on the posters and banners in front of St Paul’s Cathedral has been “What would Jesus do?”

He added that when Jesus said ‘give Caesar what belongs to Caesar’, he meant to ask ‘what’s the exact point at which involvement in the empire of capitalist economy compromises you fatally?’

The Archbishop said the challenge of Christ’s life and death was: ‘What if all your standards of success and failure are upside down?’

Dr Williams said that ‘the Jesus we meet in the Bible is somebody who constantly asks awkward questions (especially questions addressed to religious people, moral people and rich people – all the sorts of people involved at St Paul’s) rather than just giving us a model of good behaviour.’
