US may ban Bible reading preacher

American officials are seriously considering blocking an upcoming visit to the US by a controversial English archbishop who has advocated reading the King James Bible.

Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, who made the inflammatory remark in a new year message, has been ‘on the radar’ of America’s state department since he accepted an invitation to speak to a gathering of the Ku-Klux-Klan.

Williams has said that he accepted the invitation only because he ‘shares a dress sense’ with the Klan’s Grand Wizard.

‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about,’ Dr Williams said. ‘Anybody would think I was advocating burning the bloody book.’
