I’ve met a real-life hero!

It’s not often a Church of England Bishop appears in the press in a positive light, but in this story which appeared in the week, the Bishop of Lichfield tackled a gang of kids he discovered on their way out of burgling his garden, detained one and called the Police. Not only have I met Bishop Jonathan – when he was Bishop of Southampton – but I’ve pinned a radio mike on the episcopal breast. I’ve also got his autograph on my Licence to Assist with Administration of Holy Communion, so I think I’m perfectly entitled to call him my mate.

Needless to say there have been some bleeding heart liberals asking if detaining the little ratbag was in line with Christian principles – pesonally I think the church needs a few more like him, and a few less people prepared to lower standards through the floor in the name of all-inclusiveness.
