I too thought it most concerning that nearly 40% of bishops voted against their Primates “compromise”.

Very serious.

From the Telegraph:

‘They could have been forgiven for listening to Dr Sentamu’s sermon about the Samaritan, who was left stripped and beaten by the side of the road, and seeing similarities with Dr Williams.’

What version of the bible do they use at York Minster? The version I heard on Sunday in our service had the Samaritan doing the binding up of wounds etc.

…or is it just more outrageous spin.

“Dr Sentamu’s sermon about the Samaritan, who was left stripped and beaten”

This is probably the news writer’s ignorance rather than the Archbishop’s – at least I hope so!

“A divided church faces its darkest hour”

Darkest hour? O_o Wouldn’t that have been, say, when Archbishop Cranmer was going up in smoke?

I hope I may be permitted to say— there are WAY too many DRAMA QUEENS *in* and writing *on* the CofE!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
