The bishop sparked the debate with an article in the Herald on January 8 welcoming a planned national statement on religious diversity and expressing discomfort at leading Christian prayers in public, "thus excluding people of other faiths".
We live in the fraud generation where you can be an official in the Christian church and renounce all Christian beliefs...and then be praised by men for being inclusive of all, the highest virtue evidently.
Imagine a Muslim cleric trying the same? ha ha ha!
"May Day! May Day! We are sinking!!!"
"And now, dearly beloved....let us pray. Our Father....who might be in heaven......."
hallowed be the possibilty of thy existence...

"We raise our voices in supplication "To Whom it May Concern"; Look upon us benignly, enlighten or not our ignorance and unconcern, etc, etc, etc..."
