Negative infallibility

After reading the moral discomfort expressed by the Rev Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, about an unarmed Osama being shot, I think I have discovered a new criterion for truth.

If His Grace pontificates for or against something, the opposite must be true.

OBTW, this, from the Apostle Paul's Letter to the Romans, chapter 13:
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid ; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Just sayin'.
