Comments: Dancing in the aisles

Vicky Beeching sees a future Bishop in Kate Bottley, and indeed that may very well be the case, but there surely has to be more substance than a spectacular flash mob disco dance, for that to happen - or does there?

I thought that it was a super wedding when I saw the video. It is a pity that the Independent used the pleasure of a happy event to criticise the whole format of Christian worship. The layout of a church is determined by architecture, liturgy and history. Christianity and all great religions involve complicated ideas and concepts. The trivialisation of those concepts hinders religious and inter-religious understanding in the context of, in this case British but also of European plurality.
The Vicar gave the couple a splendid service the publicity misunderstands.
