Press

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.

There may be trouble ahead . . .

There may be trouble ahead . . .

Press: For years now, I have been tagging some Anglican news reports with "schism", but, last week, for the first time started doing so to stories about the Roman Catholic Church as well

Rome synod: happy, or divided?

Rome synod: happy, or divided?

Press: THE Roman Catholic synod was a story that got even better as the week rolled on. It is also an interesting example of how little even the very best journalists can understand of what is happening in fast-moving stories - not because we are particularly stupid or ill-informed, but because no one knows

Quiet revolution at the Vatican

Quiet revolution at the Vatican

Press: THE most astonishing Vatican document of the past half-century appeared on Monday - and, of the British dailies, only the Telegraph noticed it

Batter my head, three-person’d God

Batter my head, three-person’d God

Press: CHRISTIANITY doesn't get much more muscular than Manny Pacquiao, a Filipino boxer who has won ten world championships at eight different weights. He gave an interview that wonderfully bewildered The Observer's Kevin Mitchell

Sex scandals: a basic primer

Sex scandals: a basic primer

Press: THIS week the difference between Anglicans and Roman Catholics was not too theological for the papers: the Anglican sex scandal was gay; the Roman one was straight

Stop press: bishop talks sense

Stop press: bishop talks sense

Press: THE iron rule that any time a bishop says anything obvious it's potential news has been confirmed again, this time by Jonathan Wynne Jones in The Independent, who had unearthed from a philosophy blog the lucubrations of the Bishop of London, the Rt Revd Richard Chartres

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
