No More Martyrs!

Even Roman Catholic bishops seem to have been brainwashed by the health and safety fascists. Yesterday the priest refused to put the host on my tongue, I was brought up the old fashioned way that touching it once consecrated was a sin. I know many will find this quaint, in fact find the whole religion thing bizarre, but that's one of the things that makes us all so different, and interesting.

The main point is that the priest kindly explained after mass that the bishop had ordered priests not to place the host on peoples' tongues for fear of swine flu. No communion wine either.

So future risk assessments will ensure no more martys. "Sorry Joan, go home, that kind of stuff could lead to you being burnt alive!"

Anyway, it was not the Bishop of Lancaster, we are currently in a cold, wet Cornwall where there is little access to the internet. So if you want the odd rant I will be Tweeting, see the sidebar.
