They got that one right :-/

The lack of interest in this from TA readers speaks volumes...(about the church, not TA readers!)

As a Church of England pensioner I am more than grateful for the wise investments of the Church Commissioners. They carry out a service for the church, and for those of us who have given service to the church over our lifetime.
The church is a human institution, and therefore has human failings, but by Gods grace slowly moves forward.
Thinking Anglicans is a useful channel for our gripes, but also our thanks .
A channel for our prayers.

As always, it is more likely that the lack of comment from TA readers simply suggests approval.
You cannot have a good debate about something everyone agrees on.
Maybe TA should have a "like" button so we can all click without being suspected of only caring about single issues?

Remind me again, why we *ever* thought it was right to invest in Wonga?

Company makes its profits by charging extortionate interest from the poorest sections of society.

Church wants its cut of those profits.

It was surely a serious error.
