I had really believed that the misogynistic darkness imported into Wales by the Anglican church was still an active and overpowering force. I heard from a reliable source of a German Anglican priest in Abergavenny whose sermons amounted to Christofascism. It was identical to the Islamofascism found in Afghanistan.

I can't bring myself to repeat how he thinks women and children should be treated. It is too embarrassing. But if taken seriously, it could only lead to domestic abuse. Perhaps, there should really be a law against spouting this stuff. While he comes across as robotic, his immediate superior in the town presents as amiable. Yet he too comes out with this creepy crap.

I'd feared they were representative of the wider Church in Wales. It's embarrassing enough that some undergraduates think that Stephen 'Birdshit' Green who is domiciled in Wales, is in fact a native. This is the leader of 'Christian Voice' who believes that marital rape should be legal and that it should be a capital offence to be HIV positive.

What a pleasant surprise, then, that the Church in Wales has voted for female bishops, putting us ahead of the Church of England! Perhaps now the world will see that we are not trogladytes. As a bonus, Herr Sextus of Abergavenny is going over to Rome because he can't tolerate she-bishops and gay choir boys. We can only speculate about why Rome wants our bigots, but it's quite welcome to them.

I'm smiling but you are setting my teeth on edge : be wary Marianne of naming idividuals unless you are either being deadly accurate about them or are completely sending them up and taking this kind of ridicule so far over the top that nobody else can take the matter too seriously - please !

Politicians are fair game for surreality because they can be considered to be accountable for their sins to the electorate - but the rest must be left to answer to whichever god in which they happen to believe, unless they are breaking any laws, in which case please take the matter to the police !

In my own writing I try to apply the rule to which Ben Jonson other writers : the correct butt of humour should be a moral failing, that good writing should be directed towards an ethical end not merely gratuitious abuse for the sake of it - I think that you are too close to the line here !

But then on one or two occasions I have crossed it myself out of anger.
