Some of my English Facebook clergy friends are posting requests for other clergy to vote for them in the general synod elections now taking place. I wish them well and would more than likely vote for them if I was able to. Unfortunately as an unemployed priest I do not have a vote. In fact I am completely barred from all the so-called democratic processes of my church.
No wonder nobody in any position of authority gives a shit about me. I am the Church of England's equivalent of the illegal immigrant - voteless and therefore voiceless.
