As The Divine Augustus Once Said…

“For, as the divine Augustus once said: the slave-based economy of Roman imperialism is the worst of all the possible options… except for all the other ones! Besides, our economists know that slavery is a necessary growing pain of any recently developed economy and, really, its a far better option than a good many of the choices available to those barbarians.”

Oh, for crying out loud, my dear boy; must you write your low church theological reflections like such a day boarder?

“I appreciate that St Paul’s has its own means of speaking to the issue of corporate and financial conduct in the City, but am sorry that a way could not be found of – at the very least – continuing to thole the occupation of the precinct by those with a genuine and prophetic complaint that has much in keeping with the values of the gospel.”

A note: if, like me, you’d not heard the word “thole” before (in the second paragraph we quote), it’s apparently an old-fashioned verb meaning to endure, or suffer. But maybe you did know that.

    The picture I posted is just decoration; I was only trying to comment on the inability of the CofE to engage in 21st century human discourse but then dragged the Poser Prophet into it.

    Wait

    Why am I justifying myself to you?
