Taking tea with the Paisleys

Taking tea with the Paisleys

Press: THE obituaries of Ian Paisley make for fascinating reading. It is easy to forget just how vile his rhetoric most often was, but the Telegraph's obituarist was happy to remind us

Just a step from GI Joe to jihadi

Just a step from GI Joe to jihadi

Press: THE Church of England press office has hired Martha Linden from the Press Association, which is good for her and for Church House - and rather bad for journalism, since there is going to be no one left who can write with her blend of sympathy and accuracy for the wire services

Desperately seeking diversity

Desperately seeking diversity

Press: Abolutely nothing seems to have happened in the Church of England this week, according to the dailies. I do hope the news is not too disheartening for those who toil on the earlier pages of this paper. To make up for this lack, there was an extraordinary blast of attention on Islam, or at least on Muslims

Propaganda of bloody fantasies

Propaganda of bloody fantasies

Press: The Foley video, simply considered as an act of propaganda, makes clear, as nothing else could, one of the things that makes young men into Jihadis. It is the fantasy of power

A return to ancient barbarism

A return to ancient barbarism

Press: IT IS one of those weeks when the disparity between foreign and domestic news is more grotesque than usual. In Iraq, all kinds of horrors continue unabated. In England, Professor Richard Dawkins gets teased, and Vicky Beeching comes out

Lamentable lack of British values

Press: IT IS one of the great ironies of history that the criminal folly of the invasion of Iraq should have produced, 12 years on, a crisis that actually fulfils all the conditions for a just war - at the moment when the Western powers are so weakened and demoralised by their earlier, unjust war that there is really nothing they can do.

Humanism as Anglican heresy

Humanism as Anglican heresy

Press: GAZA today and Belgium 100 years ago: this has been a week dominated by wars. I am writing just as the news has come through of Baroness Warsi's resignation over the Government's policy about Gaza.

Andrew Brown reflects on coverage of the assisted dying debate, including a piece from the Bishop of Worcester for The Guardian

The C of E’s reshuffle coverage

The C of E’s reshuffle coverage

Press: SO THE mountain laboured and brought forth - a hamster, maybe? The difficult thing for the national presss about the women-bishops story was to comprehend the motives of the opponents, and the politicking behind it.

The dubious morality of choice

The dubious morality of choice

Press: A SERIES of exchanges in The Guardian showed - quite unintentionally - why the debate on assisted suicide will be lost, and how.
