1. I’m glad somebody finally noticed.

    I’ve been saying for a long time that “They have taken the Archbishop away and we do not know where they have laid him.” There is a clever plastic replica in Lambeth Palace.

    I pray for the Archbishop every day, too. I hope we all do.

  2. This is reported from an interview with The Times. It is a very good interview with Bishop Gene, marred only by the ‘aliens’ comment which the press have latched onto for their tagline.

  3. I saw that movie, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” It was later remade with Jeff Goldbloom.

    …the townspeople are in fact being replaced by perfect physical duplicates, simulacrums grown from giant plant-like pods. The Pod People are indistinguishable from normal people, except for their utter lack of emotion. The Pod People work together to secretly spread more pods — which grew from “seeds drifting through space for years” — in order to replace the entire human race.

    If I were +Katharine, and some of the others, I would check under my bed every night while attending the Primates Meeting.

  4. Well, the “Pope” supposedly approved condoms (in some cases) today—so maybe B16 has been abducted by aliens, too! O_o
