SCOTLAND GOES TO CAMBRIDGE

Blogging Bishop David Chillingworth (the Piskies' Big Boss) has just come back from one of those fancy debates at the Cambridge Union. He spoke for the motion: "This House believes that religion is a force for good in society. "

I have no idea whether he won or not, but I've posted what he said on the OCICBW... FOOTNOTES section. It's good.

By the way, check out Bishop David's THINKING ALOUD blog. He's on the side of the angels and don't worry, he spent 40 years as a parish priest slap bang in the middle of the Irish Troubles - you lot won't phase him (not even JCF).

  1. Wot? I’ve never “phased” anybody! Heck, I don’t even own a tricorder, much less a phaser!

    JCF, Sci Fi Geek (Add that to my manifold sins, MP: Lent’s coming. Send me to Bishop David for schrivening, if the job’s too big for you!)

  2. My favorite part:
    “…that [faith] makes it possible for a person to measure that to which they are by events and experience entitled – to anger and revenge – and to voluntarily renounce them. And that is the heart of the forgiveness which releases not just them but those to whom their lives are bound by painful events.”
