I have just found out that weepingcross
' bike has been stolen and you can't even see it from the road. I am absolutely outraged, not only has his bike been stolen, but he made it into the local press when his bag was stolen a couple of months ago - has society no mercy? OK I understand it is Christmas and people are out pinching presents for their loved ones, but p-l-ease, this man is a clergyman, a Gothic, and although there has been no official confirmation I am sure he is a chap
. SURELY Christmas is about CHRIST and it really is in particularly bad taste to pinch a bike off a clergyman to give to someone to celebrate the birth of Christ 'here you are darling, a lovely present to help you go to hell' That really is festive isn't it.
What happened to respect?
Who is going to do the blessings, give us communion at the midnight service, usher blessings upon us and govern the great choirs of the parish as they sing festive songs full of Christmas cheer? How is a clergyman meant to get to all of his appointments and services at this time of year without his bicycle.
