Twelve months to appoint new irrelevant bishop

Hereford is set to be without a bishop for 12 months when Anthony ‘homophobe’ Priddis steps down in September.

Due to a large number of bishops announcing their retirement elsewhere it will take another year to appoint Priddis’ successor.

Unsurprisingly, the traffic will keep flowing, the buses will carry on running late and the rain will continue to fall.

Once upon a time the Church of England was a mighty institution that could manipulate government and its parishioners.

These days—like Christianity as a whole—it is a total irrelevance as more and more people ignore the ‘word of the lord’ and take their moral guidance from family and friends.

No one will notice or care that Hereford is bishopless, and we’d be better off not appointing a new one at all.

  1. So what you’re saying is that, come September, Hereford is going to be bishopless for a year? Well given Rev Priddis’ near-invisibility and absence of vocal direction to his ‘flock’ over the last decade, I shouldn’t think it’ll make a ha’p’orth of difference!

  2. So all the spiritual support given to those on need in our community mean bugger all then? Ironic when you lot undermine the most powerful anti-establishment human being that walked this earth 2000 years ago.

    • “most powerful anti-establishment human being that walked this earth 2000 years ago”? Have you any proof this bloke existed?
      Giving spiritual support in the guise of a fairy tale religion does mean bugger all, yes.
