I agree the chap isn't doing his job properly, for sure.

Interesting, this.

Critics of the church speak of its attitude to women. Jim on another thread has recently pointed out that Jesus' attitiudes to women were more enlightened then the norm of his day.

A Rector of a parish (not in Wales) is certainly taking the proverbial where his office is concerned. Apparently this guy spends more time on the 19th hole of the golf course than going about his parish duties. He does the bare minimum where services, weddings, funerals and baptisms are concerned. Anyway yesterday I was told by a member of his congregation they were gobsmacked when at a Lent  talk, he was giving the other day, he stated quite clearly he didn't believe in the virgin birth, crucifixion and thought Jesus could well have been sh*gging (his words) Mary Magdalene! BLIMEY!

Whilst I don't believe the stories attributed to Jesus have much validity, and think it possible MM was his significant other, I am not a priest and don't stand up and say the Apostles Creed every Sunday! What a hypocrite this guy is, and should never be employed as a priest. Apparently it is very hard to sack one unless they do something  illegal so I have heard!  However money donated by the congregations of the C of E pays his salary so if he isn't doing his job he should get booted out, as people in other jobs would if they weren't doing them properly.
Floo, you need to be a bit more forthright with this thread. Firstly are you sure the CofE pays his salary? If this is correct are you sure he is Ordained? It is not hard to "sack" any Priest especially in the CofE or the C.I.W. If this Priest has stated as you have claimed then one of his Congregation should be talking to the Area/Rural Dean (of course as you already know)

... without a scrap of evidence for this assertion, despite being asked.

Cyberman, Floo has said this Cleric does the bare minimum...To begin with there is no such thing as the bare minimum, certainly not in the C of E or the C.I.W. It is also heresay what this cleric said or did not say

I don't know, but it is scandalous. This guy is definitely paid by the C of E as he is a stipendiary. Complaints are often made about this guy's behaviour but so far nothing has been done!

Why not, what?
The only requirement of a Cleric who has the Cure of Souls in a Parish is to say The Office (of Morning Prayer) daily preferably after the tolling of the Bell.

You could mean 'heresy', or you could mean 'hearsay'...?

Hey, half my post didn't get posted!

I went on to say that this included the fact that he included several women amongst his closest disciples, Mary Magdalene being among several named in the gospels.

I then went on to point out that these critics of the church then say "well if there was a woman there, it can only have been because Jesus was shagging her". I then pointed out that this was sexist, misogynistic shite.
