Mail: ‘Church departs from Bible’

Mail: ‘Church departs from Bible’

Press: JOHN BINGHAM's Telegraph scoop of both the book On Rock or Sand? and the interview with Archbishop Sentamu was a reward for consistent hard work and accuracy. But the most interesting reaction came in other papers

Muhammad: those missing images

Muhammad: those missing images

Press: The one predictable thing about catastrophes of this sort is that the comment afterwards will prove that all the commentators were right all along - in the causes they ascribed to the catastrophe, the warnings so fatefully ignored, and the remedies they had already proposed

New year? Bring out the dead

New year? Bring out the dead

Press:  Jonathan Petre demonstrated again his unnerving gift of resurrection with a story claiming: "The Church of England is embroiled in a row over proposals to sweep away laws that forbid a full Christian funeral to people who have taken their own lives."

‘A catastrophe and a crime’

‘A catastrophe and a crime’

Press: WHAT to do for the Christmas leader column is a problem that confronts the broadsheets every year. No one nowadays does the straight devotional, but it is felt that, in the absence of news, there should at least be moral exhortation

The Times in praise of torture

The Times in praise of torture

Press: I DO NOT understand why Melanie Phillips is still permitted to appear on The Moral Maze. Her defence of torture in The Times on Monday is not only disgusting in itself, but revolves around one very simple message: "It's different when we do it."

Short of food? Let them eat fish

Short of food? Let them eat fish

Press: Starting in The Mail on Sunday was a shrewd way for the Archbishop to get his point across

Misled by a sure and certain hope

Misled by a sure and certain hope

Press: THERE are some serious stories this week, some interesting ones, and some that are just flat out weird. The weirdest of these is undoubtedly that of the Wald family, of Hamilton, Ontario, who were firm in their hope of the resurrection

Bathos at home, barbarism abroad

Bathos at home, barbarism abroad

Press: TEXT messages are now the staple of salacious court reports, and I sometimes wonder why people choose to be indiscreet in a medium so very long-lived

Something happens, not a story

Something happens, not a story

Press: The women-bishops vote was a difficult story, since there was no longer any real news value to it, but it still needed to be covered

After the mushroom, the manure

After the mushroom, the manure

Press: What happens with the sort of story that, you know as you are writing it, is rubbish? Here, again, the Mail comes to our aid

Christianity still growing in China

Christianity still growing in China

Press: A FEW quick notes on the rumblings after the Roman Catholic Church's Extraordinary Synod on the Family: it was deliciously nostalgic to see Cardinal Burke complaining that the Church was now "a rudderless ship", as he did in an interview with a Spanish religious weekly.
