Men of Goodwill

Just as the Saviour declared that he had come to heal the healthy and not the sick, so the minions of the sixteenth Daddy Goodspeak have been busy ensuring that his visit to the land of John Henry Newman, Mary Tudor and Tony Blair will not be unduly encumbered with sinners. The Birmingham Oratory has exiled three of its clergymen who asked for help over an "intense but physically chaste" relationshop between the head of the Oratory and a young man. A charitable spokesbeing has lovingly accused them of "pride, anger, disobedience, disunity, nastiness, dissension, the breakdown of charity", which it would be wholly uncharitable to suggest is the Vatican equivalent of the Metropolitan Police's he was an alcoholic who downloaded child porn and ordained women priests and he died in a hail of anarchist bottles without having been in contact with officers. The Birmingham Oratory was founded by Newman, and the sixteenth Daddy Goodspeak intends to petition his invisible friend there after authorising the somewhat dead cardinal to intercede with the Almighty on behalf of those who ask nicely.

    Salvation is only for those who don't need it? Talk about an exclusive club!

    Whenever I write something about the catholic church someone always says...

    "It's very easy for you to knock and be scornful about etc etc etc"

    I usually reply...

    "Yes, it is. Very easy. It is fun too."

    It's ever so much easier than having to justify it. Today's news has someone passing as a theologian claiming that the Church removing women from the priesthood was not due to 2,000 year old sexism but the fact that women cannot stand in Jesus' jockstrap, er, shoes.
