Archbishop says nativity ‘a legend’

The Archbishop of Canterbury says that the nativity story in the New Testament is ‘a legend’:

Dr Williams said: "Matthew’s gospel says they are astrologers, wise men, priests from somewhere outside the Roman Empire, that’s all we’re really told. It works quite well as legend."

That’s more than one can say for Rowan Williams.  He’s more of a nightmare than anything else these days, and his Advent letter doesn’t help matters.
