still more about that London church service

Further to the recent announcement reported here, today Martin Dudley has a letter to the editor published in the Church Times. The original is subscriber-only at present, but it has nevertheless been reproduced in full by other websites and so can be read here, and is further copied here.

Which one is lying?

“Which one needs to make out that these discussions have taken place to keep face and his conservative evangelical constituency quiet?” 1. I love that you use “make out” instead of “pretend”. I thought our dialects were the only ones that did that. 2. What’s wrong with keeping the Consevos quiet? They already believe a whole pile of things that aren’t true, what’s the harm in one more?
