Bishop Robinson: Country Bishop Or Total Psycho?

You be the judge.

Bishop Robinson:

On Thursday, knowing that the conference attendees would leave early in the morning for London — for the MDG walk, lunch at Lambeth Palace, and tea with the Queen…

Then, we were off to London. Many months ago, I had been contacted by the Cara Trust, a philanthropic organization who has been providing support and services to those living with HIV/AIDS since the early days of the pandemic. They invited me to have tea with them and many of their clients — now not just limited to gay men, but including heterosexuals, women and especially women of color. What an honor to be asked, and what an honor to accept.

In one of those divinely humorous coincidences, our travel route from Canterbury and through the jam-packed traffic of London took us around Buckingham Palace, just at the precise moment that bishops and spouses were streaming off their coaches and into the Palace, for tea with the Queen.

But maps don’t lie:

    Is there an Option B?
    How about:

    For all of the things I have skewered The Simple Country Bishop for of late, this may well have had this happen as he said. I did a bit of Googling and Mapquesting:

    Myself,I think he’s a bit of a 1 Tim.6:3-4 type or could be better behaviourily described by the word clamour as seen in Ephesians 4;making a lot of yelling type noise(or is it whining/whimpering?) so that people will have to notice

    He seeks the limelight and unknowingly is now the lightning rod. It is wise never to stand close to him.

    Alice may have a point about not standing too close … especially given the high number of death-threats he receives from — one must assume — conservative Anglicans.
