A SAD, OLD MAN ATTEMPTS TO SPIN OUT HIS CONTRACT

I suppose if your job is completely dependent on schism and factional fighting you would try and continue the unpleasantness for as long as possible.

I bet The Grand Tufti was pissed when he saw this. How on earth is he going to persuade the middle ground at Synod to start stoking up the ovens if his friends are going to blab out the truth about what he really believes on the BBC.

By the way, I was thinking of going with the headline, "Schismatics Lack Teeth." But then I decided that would be too offensive.

  1. I need to listen to this again when I’m more awake.

    I must say, though, I like it when he said, “Do you really think this is comfortable?” and then talked about the difference between his salary and his son’s.

    Hmmm. My word verification is “strab”. There needs to be a good definition for that one. To good a word to waste, IMHO.

  2. Jim, please. “Steal” is not a word that ever crosses the good Father Troll’s lips. I think you mean something like “clerical reinvestment” or “imaginative redistribution of wealth.”

  3. Goodness’ sake! A good BBC interview!

    How did +Broadhurst make it through to ordination without learning some essentials of Anglican history?

    (“fecroiti”?????)

  4. (“fecroiti”?????)!!!!! Following the thread and its comments, I LOLROFL and I’m in the church office! But seriously, WSJM, my word verification is “wayer”, as in, “Ellie’s word verification is way funny but yours is wayer funny than hers!”

    (I need a break – long Ugandan statement, followed by Rowan, than the string of Muslim things – I’m going home for an afternoon nap.)

  5. Actually, it happens quite often. I don’t post jokes that concern “stupid” women (blonde jokes etc.). I reject a lot of comments by members of our community that I think might be offensive to an individual in our community. I don’t do sex stories unless there is a high degree of hypocrisy involved or they are very funny. And I don’t joke about illness or tragedy (well, not much).
