Press

A problem that PR cannot solve

A problem that PR cannot solve

AN APOLOGY is due. I may have given the impression in earlier years that the press operations of the Church of England were uniquely incompetent. I now understand that I was wrong

Where belief is optional

Where belief is optional

A TROUBLING story of Church-state relations from Nigeria, where a small mob attacked a Pentecostal church, apparently at the urging of a local politician

The one you could know about

The one you could know about

THIS has been a thought-provoking week for anyone who cares about the power of the press

Welby and Brideshead redeemed

Welby and Brideshead redeemed

"IT LOOKS as if many people were shocked that the Telegraph splashed the story about Justin Welby’s father, but I thought it was good journalism, and brilliantly handled by the Welby family"

Things that cannot be told

Things that cannot be told

YOU will have to take the rest of this sentence on trust: by the standards of British journalism, I am a pretty high-minded person. But by the standards of Swedish journalism — and I am writing from Sweden — I am the lowest sort of tabloid racist reptile

Saying something nice for Easter

Saying something nice for Easter

"EASTER is the time, above all, when the broadsheet papers try to say something nice about Christianity"

The workings of their consciences

After Ball, Lord Carey comes to Bell’s aid

After Ball, Lord Carey comes to Bell’s aid

ALL credit to the ingenious Jonathan Petre at The Mail on Sunday for unearthing a letter in support of Bishop George Bell from Lord Carey, who would doubtless have been horrified if any of his predecessors had weighed in on his running of the Church

The danger of trusted friends

The danger of trusted friends

THE most wrenching story of the week turned up from the Old Bailey: the story of a “vicar’s” son who left to fight, and die, for Islamic State in Syria

A mosque on the TV set

A mosque on the TV set

WHAT is it that Muslims actually do? The Sun leaves us with no doubt. They blow things up, or they think about doing so. Two stories in today’s paper make this very clear
