Pots and kettles

A busy Sunday in the parish, but the day began with one of those wildly funny modern Anglican moments which never fail to cheer me up. A discussion on the BBC's fairly dire early morning "Sunday" radio programme about the singing of  Blake's Jerusalem in church (of all the things to get worked up about - "the whole creation groaning........" )  culminated with Colin Slee, Dean of Southwark, accusing Bishop Stephen Platten of Wakefield of  promoting "a recipe for religious anarchy."
Presumably the Dean (the wielder of one of the biggest wooden spoons in the Church of England) is only in favour of religious anarchy when it relates to his own pet issues.
Priceless. Once again way beyond irony.
