Press

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

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

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.
