What did the aide say about the Bishop ...?
Okay, I shouldn't really find this funny. Clearly someone was having a bad day, did something a bit stupid and now is paying by losing their job.
It's a shame that such animosity exists in the CofE (and other churches) between the conservative and liberal camps. One reason I'm proud to be a part of the CofE is that such a wide range of theological, spiritual and ethical positions exist under one umbrella. There are those who think that each group should split off into like-minded groups, and if we want continue to only mix with those who think the same way as us, then I guess that might as well be the solution.
It might be idealistic, but I'd like to see Anglicans of different traditions and perspectives actively seeking each other out in order to better learn from and understand one another.
Until then, maybe we'll just call each other names....
