'Freedom of speech sometimes means freedom for the powerful to bully and abuse'

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, argues that the term "snowflake" is offensive to "younger generations."

During a speech to the House of Lords, Archbishop Welby said youngsters who are concerned about “the safety and protection of minorities” are more willing to call “for restrictions on speech” to protect minority groups.

Welby said such criticism is “much nonsense,” claiming that “freedom of speech sometimes means freedom for the powerful to bully and abuse."

The Archbishop described the BBC as an example of “true freedom of speech” but said it does "get things wrong.”

Archbishop Welby also added that he was not offended when Spectator columnist Rod Liddle wrote he hoped he would be “mugged at knifepoint by a gang of refugees” in an attack on his open-border stance.

Welby also took a dig at President Donald Trump.

Discussing false on social media, Welby said:

"To put it another way, sunlight is no more always the best disinfectant —no more than disinfectant is ever medicine for treating Covid,” referencing Trump's comments that some people took literally.

Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported that Welby said God should not be referred to using gender pronouns because "our father" was gender-neutral, not male or female.

Welby suggested masculine and feminine labels used to describe the Christian deity are false, and that despite the use of words such as "king" and "lord," – Christians must stop referring to God solely "he."

Last month, Welby claimed that ignoring climate change will allow an “infinitely greater” genocide than the Holocaust.

Neon Nettle reported at the time:

Welby faced backlash after saying the world would be judged “in far stronger terms” than those who appeased Nazi Germany.

During a speech at the COP26, Welby said politicians who do not adopt the green agenda will be cursed, and future generations “will speak of them in far stronger terms than we speak today of the politicians of the ’30s, of the politicians who ignored what was happening in Nazi Germany, because this will kill people all ’round the world for generations, and we will have no means of averting it.”

“I’m not sure there’s grades of genocide, but there’s width of genocide, and this will be genocide indirectly by negligence, recklessness, that will, in the end, come back to us, or to our children and grandchildren,” he asserted.
