Our 'The Anglican Communion's Eternal Obsession to become a Fad' File is getting full
File this one under 'Anglican Communion Just Getting Downright Weird.'
"The Chancellor of the Diocese of Lichfield was this week considering his judgement in a case of an over-eager clergyman versus Canon Law specifications for font placements. The rare case was brought before ecclesiastical court after the Rector of Trentham, the Rev Nigel di Castiglione, and two churchwardens landed in the hot water for moving the font without the necessary consent, according to the Lichfield Diocesan spokesman."
So . . . you can ordain a practicing homosexual divorcee to the episcopate, but you can't slide the water font three feet to the left?
Christopher Johnston at Midwest Conservative Journal, our perennial commentor of Anglican wackiness, has this advice for the vicar in question:
"Idiot. If you'd just told people that you moved the font to better accomodate gay and lesbian parishioners like you were supposed to, the Diocese wouldn't have had to go to all this trouble."
