← Armed forces bishop says sorry for praising Taliban

Roland_F's Avatar Jump to comment 24 by Roland_F

Bishop Venner told the paper the insurgents could "perhaps be admired for their conviction to their faith and their sense of loyalty to each other".

Well the religious from different cults make strange bedfellows. The pope emperor Ratzinger also praised the Muslims for their strong religious conviction, lifestyle and unwavering faith.
He said he would be "deeply grieved" if anyone had taken offence and hoped he had not jeopardised his job

And this is what this retraction is all about, as the Bishop of the armed forces of the UK likes his well paid job on the expense of British tax payers.
He will continue his role as Bishop for the Falkland Islands.

So British taxpayers are also funding a well paid job role as Bishop of the armed forces of the Falkland’s.
