Bishop "sorry" for royal remarks

A Church of England bishop has apologised for "deeply offensive" comments on Facebook about Prince William's engagement to Kate Middleton. The Bishop of Willesden, the Rt Rev Pete Broadbent, said the marriage would last about seven years. Not very charitable, not very Christian. Casting aspersions is hardly the thing of bishops. I suppose we must be glad he apologised. Repentance and all that....

Bishop Pete, as he likes to be known, is some kind of republican sympathiser and no doubt some kind of sympathiser to the new doctrines. Maybe King Chas and Queen Kate are more to his liking. I wonder what the New Testament would have been like if the Rock on which the Church was built went around calling himself "Pete"?
