Below the belt!

In this period of turmoil over the teacher being "convicted" for religious hatred in the Sudan, it should be in the best interests of all living in Britain to behave in a civilised way.

Down in Cornwall someone or some persons are being decidedly un-Christian and exceedingly nasty. They have taken against Yvonne Hobson who is a curate at a church near Newlyn. What exactly she has done to cause such hatred I do not know, apart from one thing. The perpetrators claim to be expressing "hatred of women priests". This justifies arson attempts?? Never in a month of Sundays!

Now I am not a believer in the concept of women being priests, but that is based on theological understanding and sacramental practice. Others disagree with me and the part of Christian thinking to which I belong. But I have no wish to denigrate, harm or abuse those that do. They have all the right in the world to a freedom of expression and belief.

So leave this woman alone. Let her not be afraid or harrassed. Those responsible for this outrage get down on your bended knees and PRAY!!!
