Church bureaucrats say the stupidest things, Vol. MCMXXXLIXIII

H/T to David Fischler at Stand Firm for calling out World Council of Churches General Secretary Olav Fykse Tveit for making this unbelievably stupid comment about the conflict in Egypt.
This affects the whole of Egypt. I hope that this will not be interpreted as a conflict between Christians and Muslims.
Aside from reminding us that a long since discredited organization known as the World Council of Churches (WCC) can still manage to insert itself into a controversy once in a blue moon (literally), Tveit's statement only serves to demonstrate how utterly irrelevant the oldline ecumenical movement is and always has been.

Cue the tape.
