Comments: Bishop Katharine in North Carolina

Watching George Carey go on about how muslims are having difficulty coming to terms with the modern world was a bit of a laugh.

I do get the impression, watching ++Schori, that she is a human being who is being slowly fed through the mincer, with tortured dignity. Prayers for her.

I loved reading Schori's contribution to Episcopal Life. Pragmatic, pratical, do-able. Wonderful.

The dream of freedom has not yet been realised, in any community in this land of across the globe. As long as any of us is restrained by custom, law, prejudice or bigotry, we all remain in chains. Our labours in this church continue to sing of hope for the full fourishing of all God's children, black, white, Native, Asian, women, men, gay and straight, differently abled and full and able-bodied. We still yearn for the realisation of Paul's ancient creed, "in Christ there is neither slave nor free, Jew nor Greek, male and female." In Christ we are all beloved, we are all wanted, we are all of infinitely precious worth.

Send a copy to Tanzania: this defines what it is all about.

Speaking of cultural differences I was a bit put off to see Lord Carey sitting in his chapel like an Idol in a Shrine. No bishop would permit that sort of thing here, I can tell you. Never in a church, unless it is about that church.

The interviewer was incredibly ignorant and non prepared. No follow-ups.

This degree of incompetence would never be tolerated in the pink pages or sports sections.
