The Church of England has forced the resignation of Giles Fraser, a Cannon at St Paul’s Cathedral, London for his support for the Occupy Wall Street folk around his Church, and this has prompted this cartoon from Steve Bell in the UK Guardian, and comments via my friend Benny. Thanks Benny:
So we now have a situation where people who are peacefully protesting against greed & poverty on the steps of a Christian Church may be forcibly & violently removed? The same church which promote the teachings of a radical Jewish revolutionary who hung out with lepers and other “rabble”? Incurable
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and Mammon.
Matthew 6:19-21,24 from Skatycat
This is Giles (this replaces a photo of another Giles)
