Christmas Is Spoiled By Opulence Says Archbishop Welby (Dressed In Golden Robes)

by | 15th, November 2013


JUSTIN Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has said that people are making themselves “miserable” at Christmas and potentially damaging their relationships because of their penchant for buying expensive presents and leaving themselves skint.

The pressure of flashing it around apparently means that people are potentially putting the relationships of loved ones at risk FOREVER.

Welby said: “The secular over-the-topness, everything you have to have, new clothes you have to have, new this, new that, new the other, is ridiculous, it shouldn’t happen. It puts pressure on relationships because when you’re short of money you argue. You get cross with your kids more easily, it spoils life.”

“Giving at Christmas reflects the generosity of God. So be generous in a way that shows love and affection rather than trying to buy love and affection,” he added.

Of course, it’s a bit rich coming from a bloke who wears a tall golden hat, has opulent robes depending on which day of the week it is, who lives in a cathedral, surrounded by golden representations of Jesus and his crew.

In fact, the Archbishop of Canterbury has two residencies and is on around £60,000 a year and went to Eton.

And furthermore, wasn’t he setting up a rival to payday loan companies? If that happens, we should all knock on one of his many doors and get gigantic loans out and spend preposterous amounts of money this Yule.

All in the name of Jesus Christ, of course.
