All the recent talk about little David Virtue has got my constipation playing up, and nothing puts this Doctrinal Warrior in a foul mood like trouble in my elementals. Fortunately young Bishop Venables must have heard me grumbling, because his interview yesterday afternoon with Pat Ashton from the Church Times has got me laughing harder than Brother Richthofen’s nitrous oxide cylinder.
"Anything we’ve done in the Southern Cone has been temporary and emergency to give people holding ground until there is something far more official and practical." In other words Greg Venables is saying he lured Layperson Schofield into jumping off his purple throne for something only temporary!! I’ll bet he forgot to mention that part to little John-David when he had him sign on the dotted line, don’t you think?
And when you finally catch your breath and stop laughing at that one, Greggie V lays it down again: "my whole aim was to do something short-term." Not as short-term as your friendship with the Episcopalians you talked into throwing away their careers is going to be, Your Grace.
