From THE SUN:
Church of England priest, Michael Land, has risked controversy by claiming Jesus regularly turned the air blue.
He said: "I'd have no problem using the F-word in a sermon if it meant I was connecting with people. The number attending services is falling and the church needs to modernise so it doesn't fall behind completely. If that means swearing I say, 'Why bloody not?' People place Jesus on a pedestal. They'd probably be shocked by his language. He was poor and lacked any real education."
Rev Land also told what happened recently, when a motorist cut him up. He said: "I wound my window down and said, 'Why don't you learn to f***ing drive'. The other motorist just walked away."
Rev Land now preaches at St Mary's in sleepy Burghill, Herefordshire. Yesterday a woman parishioner in her 80s said: "I'd feel uncomfortable if he started effing and blinding."
