Bishop of Salisbury: Congregants should fast once a month to protect (sic?) against climate change

The Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, clueless lefty, snappy dresser

The Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, who chairs the church’s Environment Working Group, outlined how care for the planet could become part of clergy training. In a background paper to a vote on the issue, he wrote: “Creating options and pathways for including environmental ethics and “eco-theology” in the training curriculum could encourage and support the church leaders of the future (especially younger candidates) to be enablers for others in seeking change and a sustainable future.”

    I know we have been doing the best of nice manners. Now 30 years war and all the rest of it. Yeah BAD IDEA Mum… It isn’t as if I had a direct hand in the matter but am all for adequate defenestration when the need arises.

    Silly hats really do seem to correlate with stupid thinking. (see any random imam photo)

    • Justin St.Denis

      The Minister for Silly Hats should be fired immediately.

    The C of E lost the plot decades ago, this latest stupidity is just more of the same as the institution swirls around the drain…

    • Justin St.Denis

      The CofE used to be merely amusing. Now it’s a laugh-out-loud joke of erect penises, engorged vaginas, and extremely stupid clergy persons, most of whom believe in erect penises and engorged vaginas for sure but Jesus – not so much!

      Great Britain. The brains left decades ago. Now all that is left is the remnants of a class system at war with the chav class that is unwelcome everywhere called western civilization. I place my bets on the muslims, frankly. They are the least disgusting of the three groups left in Great Britain – the crumbling elites, the chavs, the muslims.

        Last one out, hit the lights. That’ll be their final sermon for this moribund pseudo religion.

    Maybe we can just celebrate Ramadan-a-ding-dong-a-rama and fast for that entire time while we’re at it! 🙂

  • Sir Roderick Spode

    Enough, enough, enough with all the faggot priest, bishops and popes.

    It just shows that the pope has no monopoly on ecclesiastical foolishness.

    • ntt1

      Here’s a thought….maybe it is some kind of ecclesiastical one-upmanship? Who knows how the roman church will respond, perhaps by replacing the lords prayer with the Muslim call to prayer.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Actually, Pope Francis is a total fucking clown and likely not even Catholic. Bad choice for a comparison. Under Francis, the RC Church is no longer RC. Real Catholicswill return after Francis dies and a new Roman Caholic popes installed.

  • Hard Little Machine

    I was expecting him to say we should fast like we celebrate Ramadan.

      Nothing like not-fasting during an official fast.
