Naturally I strongly disputed the entirely base and scurrilous complaints, and to prove I bore absolutely no ill-will to his
It would be a gross understatement to say my brilliant initiative proved overwhelmingly popular with young people, who in arrived in such numbers that the Baptists have been forced to shut down their mission after only two days. What’s more, out of gratitude their Senior Minister personally undertook to see all complaints regarding our emails were withdrawn in return for my promise that Brother Richthofen’s Friends from Seminary will release his Youth Pastor relatively unharmed.

All of which shows just how well believers of different persuasions can co-operate when a Biblical Conservative of my stature is in charge, even if one of the parties isn’t actually Christian. With all the fuss over Mitregate I’m expecting at least one of the parties will be calling for my assistance any moment now. Not, of course, that this latest tiff in the Communion is anywhere near as serious as the challenges I’ve recently faced.
That’s because as far as I can see the whole problem revolves around the Presiding Bishop having been discriminated against - in this instance because she is differently-genitalled to ++Cantaur’s personal predilection when it comes to Prelates.

Were Tiger Woods, for example, be prevented from playing at a British course, but instead only permitted to participate as a caddie, I very much doubt anyone would make the slightest fuss. Or if instead of competing at Wimbeldon, the Williams sisters were only allowed to fetch Caucasian players’ drinks, does anyone honestly believe there’d be any outcry? And I’m sure big Pete Akinola doesn’t give so much as a second thought when told that on account of his ethnicity he must refrain from travelling anywhere near the front of the bus. So what’s so different about a democratically-elected woman called to leadership by God being treated like a second-class servant?
I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.
