  New Archbishop hits out at Disney
Updated 23 July 2002, 19.36
New Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams
Disney has been given a ticking off by the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams.

In a book he's written, Dr Williams has criticised the way big companies like Disney do deals with other companies to help sell toys and food to children.

He's also criticised computer games and talent shows.

Dr Williams wrote the book a couple of years ago, but his ideas have become more important now he has been named as the new head of the Church of England.

New ideas

He will take over from the current Archbishop Dr George Carey in October.

He is described as being "a liberal".

This means he's open to new ideas and is keen on interpreting The Bible in ways that make sure it remains relevant and important.

Top thinker

Dr Williams is known as one of the cleverest people involved in religion, and his ability to make people understand The Bible has been praised highly.

However some other members of the church are worried about his new ways of thinking and want him to explain some of the changes he might make.
